Transitional Care in Richardson: Reducing Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
When an elderly loved one must undergo an in-hospital procedure, it can cause significant stress for the entire family. Even after release from the hospital, seniors remain vulnerable and are especially prone to re-admission. Transitional care is crucial to their recovery, and that's just what the Ready-Set-Go program from Visiting Angels® Richardson provides.
With compassionate and dignified support, our companion caregivers help pave the way home from the hospital for seniors in Richardson, Dallas, Addison, Garland and the surrounding communities, so that once they get home, they can stay there.
Without transitional care, seniors on the road to recovery face all kinds of bumps and swerves which can seriously derail their progress. Failure to follow-through with doctor's aftercare instructions, missed medications, and early overexertion are just a few of the things that often send seniors back to the hospital prematurely. However, many of the risks facing seniors can be prevented with assistance and monitoring.
Safeguard Your Loved One with Transitional Care from Visiting Angels Richardson
At Visiting Angels Richardson, we take a comprehensive, 3-pronged approach to transitional care that ensures your loved one is taken care of throughout every step of the hospitalization process.
At Home - In the time before and after a senior enters the hospital, they often need additional help at home. There may be doctor's instructions to follow in preparation for a procedure, and there are certain to be aftercare requirements as well. Transitional care can help your loved one to follow their instructions and focus on recovery by preventing them from engaging in unnecessarily strenuous activities.
At the Hospital - Time spent in the hospital can be frustratingly dull and lonely for seniors. A companion caregiver can keep your loved one company while they're hospital-bound and also ensure that they understand the information given to them by hospital staff. They can also coordinate directly with medical staff to make sure that the transition from the hospital back to home is a seamless one.
Behind the Scenes - The staff at the Visiting Angels Richardson office can work remotely to coordinate the delivery of medical equipment and supplies so that everything is ready back at home for a smooth release.
