Transitional Care in San Angelo Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care 

For far too many seniors across the US and here at home in San Angelo, a single stay in the hospital can result in return visits, racking up costs and wearing them down. In fact, 1 in 5 elders are readmitted within 30 days of their release. So how do you avoid having it happen to your loved one? Transitional care from Visiting Angels® San Angelo takes care of many of the major obstacles which normally stand between a senior and a smooth recovery. 

Why Get Transitional Care?

Making sure your senior doesn't need to go back into the hospital after a treatment comes down to a few factors. Keeping them informed and supported are key. The constant interruptions that come with a hospital stay can throw off a senior's sleeping and eating schedule, leaving them exhausted or without appetite back at home - both of which can be barriers to a speedy recovery. 

Without the support of transitional care, a recently discharged senior in San Angelo can also be prone to:

  • Missing or mixing up medications
  • Misinterpreting discharge instructions
  • Failing to attend follow-up appointments
  • Not drinking enough water, or getting adequate nutrition
  • Not getting enough rest or engaging in stressful activities
