Transitional Care in Sarasota Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care 

Visiting Angels® Sarasota is a trusted resource for transitional care referrals. Our Ready-Set-Go-Home program finds assistance for elderly and disabled adults who need help with the transition between an inpatient hospital stay and recovery at home. Many families discover that, although their loved one is ready to be discharged from the hospital, they still need assistance once they get home. Transitional care referrals from Visiting Angels Sarasota can provide your loved one with the non-medical care they need, helping them continue on the path to wellness.

Common Causes of Hospital Readmissions

When it comes to transitional care, Visiting Angels Sarasota knows the biggest concerns among seniors who have recently been discharged from the hospital often revolve around readmission. The first 30 days following a hospital discharge pose the highest risk for costly readmissions. There are several main reasons why seniors may fail to follow discharge instructions.

  • Your loved one may struggle to follow a prescribed meal plan upon their return home.
  • Some seniors need assistance with mobility in order to avoid falls or strenuous physical activity.
  • Elderly loved ones may require help with medication reminders to stay on a schedule.

No matter what types of non-medical transitional care your loved one needs, Visiting Angels Sarasota is here to help with referrals for reliable care.
