Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

According to information from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service, an average of 1 in 5 Medicare benificiaries will be readmitted to the hospital within their first 30 days following discharge. This is not only disheartening, it can be costly for affected families. It is only natural to focus on discharge when a loved one is admitted to the hospital. However, it is important to plan for the next phase of recovery which occurs after a loved one is back at home. Visiting Angels® in Riverside County CA cares for seniors and disabled adults by providing transitional care at home.

Transitional care is the link between inpatient care and recovery in the Riverside CA area. It is believed that many cases of hospital readmission are due to an inability to follow discharge instructions. Care from Visiting Angels in Riverside County can help a loved one follow hospital discharge instructions so they can continue on the path to wellness.
