Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Our Transitional Care Solutions

At Visiting Angels Pueblo, we know that having assistance at home can go a long way toward helping your loved one rest and heal after a hospital stay. After hospitalization for an injury, illness or operation, many seniors find themselves at risk for readmission. Surprisingly, nearly 1 in 5 seniors will be readmitted to a hospital within 30 days after discharge. The lack of a discharge plan or help following a doctor's recommended recovery plan plays a crucial role in this statistic. With assistance from our transitional care program, seniors in the Pueblo area can have the support they need to recover successfully.

Our transitional care program helps seniors with a wide range of activities that can be difficult for seniors who are still recovering and regaining their strength. Our caregivers can help your loved one follow doctor's orders in order to reduce the risk of readmission. Some of the ways our transitional care services help seniors in the Pueblo area include:

  • Help with bathing, dressing, and personal hygiene
  • Medication reminders and picking up prescriptions at the pharmacy
  • Help remembering and providing transportation to follow up and therapy appointments
  • Friendly conversation and emotional support during recovery
  • Help following and incorporating lifestyle changes into current routines
  • Light housekeeping assistance
  • Help preparing healthy meals that meet doctor's recommendations
  • Transferring and walking assistance

The first few weeks home are often the most difficult for seniors who are still recovering after hospitalization. From general weakness, to fatigue, to remembering all the doctors' recommendations, it can be hard for seniors to keep it all straight when they are home. You can provide your loved one with the support they need to continue to recover at home with our transitional care program.

Families throughout Pueblo, Pueblo West, Cañon City, Walsenburg, Trinidad, La Junta, Lamar, and most of Southern Colorado trust Visiting Angels Pueblo to provide their loved ones with essential personal transitional care. Call Visiting Angels Pueblo CO today to learn more about our transitional care services and how they can help your loved one.
