This type of care can play a crucial role when recovering from a hospital stay and help your loved one avoid the significant risk of re-hospitalization faced by many seniors.

Visiting Angels Roswell proudly serves the entire Roswell area. Our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program is available to seniors in Roswell, as well as those in nearby areas like Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, and Johns Creek, GA.

Why Choose Non-Medical Transitional Care in Roswell

When seniors are sent home from the hospital after an injury, illness, or operation, they are often at high risk of re-hospitalization. Among seniors on Medicare, almost 1 in 5 will end up back in the hospital within 30 days after being discharged and sent home. In hundreds of thousands of cases each year, re-hospitalization occurs because seniors did not follow their doctor-recommended recovery plan.

Transitional care services from Visiting Angels of Roswell, GA can provide your loved one with the support he or she needs to make a successful recovery. Our senior care services help seniors follow doctor’s orders and avoid common risks that can result in re-hospitalization.

Some of the ways our home care services help seniors include:

  • Assistance with daily activities like dressing, grooming, personal hygiene, showering, and/or toileting when these tasks may be difficult or dangerous for seniors to perform on their own.
  • Reminding seniors about important appointments and accompanying them on their visits to the doctor or other specialists.
  • Providing medication reminders.
  • Offering compassionate care, conversation, and companionship for seniors who find recovery to be a difficult or emotionally challenging period.
  • Helping seniors follow lifestyle recommendations, such as practicing specific exercises and following a doctor-recommended diet.
