Transitional Care in East Lansing Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready, Set, Go Home with Transitional Care
With our transitional care option, Visiting Angels® East Lansing provides specialized support for seniors as they transition home from the hospital. Our goal is to maintain a safe and comfortable environment, so they can recover in the peace, privacy, and dignity of their own home. Our support is always customized, but typical care duties often include things like meal prep, medication reminders, bathing and grooming care, fall prevention, and much more.
Why Readmissions Occur
Here are a few common reasons why seniors often struggle to stay out of the hospital:
- Difficult adjustments. The injury or illness that sent them to the hospital in the first place may require some new lifestyle adjustments. This can be difficult for a person to manage on their own, so it's a great idea to have a caregiver around who can navigate their new condition and help them avoid dangerous or stressful activities.
- Disrupted routine. The time period immediately following a hospital stay is a crucial time for your loved one to get rest. It can be difficult to sleep in a hospital, so it's important to make sure they can return home and completely relax. Our caregivers can handle housework, errands, meal prep, and other duties to make life much easier during this difficult time.
- Memory issues. If your loved one struggles with memory issues, they may fail to remember new medical advice or have trouble keeping up with their medication schedule. We can provide the stable support they need to stay on track.
- Failure to follow up. A missed follow-up appointment after a hospital stay can really hurt their chances of a smooth recovery. We will provide safe transportation, mobility assistance, and any other support they need to attend their appointments.
