Benefits to Home Transitional Care Services

Being discharged from the hospital is a crucial part of recovery from illness, injury, or surgery — but it is rarely the final step. The weeks and months after discharge play a crucial role in recovery, and they can be an especially difficult time for seniors. In fact, up to 20% of Medicare patients find themselves back in the hospital within 30 days of a hospital discharge.

Transitional care services from Visiting Angels of Powder Springs can lower the risk of readmission after a hospital visit. Our at home caregivers provide seniors with several services to aid them in their recovery, including:

  • Physical assistance to help seniors rest and reduce their risk of overexerting or injuring themselves.
  • Reminders to help clients take their medications on time.
  • Help with meal planning and preparation, including help following doctor’s dietary recommendations.
  • Providing seniors with companionship during what is often a lonely and emotionally challenging period.
  • Monitoring seniors for signs of complication during their recovery.

Visiting Angels Transitional Caregivers

To provide seniors with the comprehensive at home caregivers and support they need during their recovery, Visiting Angels of Powder Springs takes a three-prong approach to our transitional care program.

  1. At the hospital — When our clients are admitted to the hospital, we provide them and their families with options for support during the hospital stay. When doctors begin planning for discharge, we take an active role to ensure our caregivers are aware of all recovery directives. We also offer guidance to family members during the discharge planning process, helping ensure they have the information they need during their loved one’s recovery.
  2. At the client’s home — Once a senior has been discharged from the hospital, our at home caregivers will visit them in the comfort of their home according to an agreed upon schedule. While there, we will provide them with any needed non-medical support and monitor their condition for risks of complication.
  3. At our office — If you find yourself overwhelmed, our office staff can help you coordinate important support services during your loved one’s recovery. We also track which clients are at highest risk of complication to ensure they are properly cared for and monitored.
