For transitional care, choose Ready-Set-Go Home. At Visiting Angels® Palm Desert, we’ve created this senior care program specifically for those who are set to be discharged from the hospital.

This type of care is available in Palm Desert, Bermuda Dunes, Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs, Indian Wells, Indio, La Quinta, Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, and throughout the surrounding areas.
Understanding the Importance of Transitional Care
Among the older adults on Medicare, almost 1 in 5 who are discharged from the hospital make a return within a brief thirty-day window. There are many negative consequences for such a quick return, including the expense and inconvenience of staying at the hospital. More importantly, however, it should be noted that seniors are much less likely to make a full recovery if they are re-hospitalized within this crucial month following their initial discharge.
How Visiting Angels Palm Desert Helps
Transitional care offers the outside support most older individuals require to avoid the complications that could otherwise put them back in the hospital. We know the vast majority of preventable readmissions could be eluded simply by following the instructions given by expert physicians. Unfortunately, this is often easier said than done for seniors in a weakened state. Our care providers can assist these individuals with maintaining their well-being and following doctors’ orders, helping them significantly increase their odds of recovery.
Here are the types of care included in our three-prong approach:
- Care at the hospital. Our caregivers meet with elderly adults while they are still in the hospital and discuss the discharge planning process with them and their concerned family members.
- Care at home. Following the transition from hospital to home, our caregivers offer a helping hand with a wide range of activities. These services could include dignified assistance with bathing and getting dressed, assistance with preparing healthy meals, reminders to take medications and drink fluids, and monitoring to prevent risky behaviors.
- Care from our office. Our local office also gets involved in the care process by facilitating deliveries and reminders, taking care of the logistical aspects of caregiving, and identifying seniors who may have a heightened risk of being readmitted to the hospital.
