Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Preparing for a loved one's hospital stay is a big undertaking for any family. There's packing to do and pre-admission procedures to follow. Most of all, there is the planning for when they return and are inevitably in need of greater care during their recovery. For many families, being on-call is not possible or practical. Transitional care from Visiting Angels® Sheboygan can help to bridge that gap. We'll take care of your loved one's homecoming so that they can rest and recover to the fullest without you having to worry about whether or not they have what they need at home. 

The Risks Seniors Face After Discharge

For many seniors, the road to recovery is a bumpy one, lined with obstacles that could force them to reverse right back into the hospital such as failing to follow through with discharge instructions and overexerting themselves too early. Due to their fragile condition, seniors face an especially high risk of re-injury as well.  

Some of the other challenges that seniors face without transitional care from Visiting Angels Sheboygan may include:

  • Managing their aftercare instructions
  • Getting to and from follow-up appointments
  • Staying on top of medications and filling prescriptions
  • Maintaining good hygiene and nutrition
  • Managing daily household chores
  • Avoiding undue physical strain 

Any one of these things can send a senior back to the hospital, but are easily avoided with the additional support and monitoring that transitional care from Visiting Angels Sheboygan provides.
