How Transitional Care in San Antonio Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Seniors who have been discharged from the hospital often require dedicated support. Our transitional care program has been created specifically for this purpose. At Visiting Angels® San Antonio, we know how stressful the recovery process can be for both elderly adults and their families. Our services help give these individuals confidence and set care recipients up for a successful transition from their hospital stay back to life at home.
Why Is Transitional Care Important?
Many seniors experience a decline in their functionality after they’ve been hospitalized. This can impair their ability to complete essential tasks that once came easily, whether that’s bathing, remembering to drink fluids regularly, or keeping track of medication schedules. When even the most basic activities are tiring, it can be difficult for recently discharged seniors to maintain their well-being and stay on the path to recovery.
A large portion of hospital readmissions among seniors can be avoided simply by making sure they have the support they need to get through their daily routines and follow their physicians’ instructions. Our care providers are able to offer that support. We give family caregivers respite from their duties and offer seniors compassionate assistance that helps them maintain a positive outlook for the future.
How Visiting Angels San Antonio Helps
Our local care agency helps seniors who are about to undergo a discharge by starting the process of transitional care during their hospitalization. We want to give care recipients and their family members all the information they need to adequately prepare for this change. That way, they can communicate with their physicians about best practices and coordinate care during and after the transition.
Next, we deliver care for the senior in the comfort of their home. Our services are personalized to suit the senior’s lifestyle and individual needs. For example, if they need direct physical support and assistance with mobility, we’ll ensure their caregiver can meet those care requirements.
Our office staff also take part in the care process by coordinating logistics and reminders as needed. With this comprehensive approach to transitional care, elderly adults can know they are fully supported in their recovery.
