Why Readmissions Are A Concern For Greenwich Seniors 

For many seniors, there's unfortunately a serious risk of getting re-hospitalized after an initial hospital release. When this happens, the rate of recovery can be lowered. In Greenwich and lower Fairfield County, transitional care can not only aid your loved one in their time of need, it can also help to prevent an initial readmission in the first place. Many elderly family members who return home from the hospital have experienced a fall or injury that led to initial hospitalization. This can lead to further mobility issues when they return home. In addition, they might be in pain, confused, or medicated, making it difficult to follow complicated doctors' instructions that are essential to recovery. With professional care from Visiting Angels Stamford, your loved one can get assistance in understanding doctors' instructions, help moving around the home with ease, and other vital support. 

Our Impactful Approach To Transitional Care in Greenwich 

For Greenwich area seniors, our Ready-Set-Go Home program brings a multi-pronged approach to care and preventing hospital readmissions: 

  • Before release. Our care program starts while your loved one is still in the hospital. Our professional caregivers can provide guidance to your family as you navigate the complex discharge process, so you know what questions to ask doctors and how to coordinate your loved one's release.   
  • At home. Once your family member is at home, we can provide 24-hour assistance to help make sure they are safe and comfortable at all times. If we notice any unexpected changes in their mental or physical health, we can let you know immediately. 
  • At the office. Our Greenwich area office will work behind-the-scenes to assist in transitional care, from helping to coordinate medical equipment delivers, sending reminders for doctors' appointments, and other essential logistical support. 

If you have a family member in the hospital, now is a good time to get in touch with Visiting Angels Stamford. Call our office today, and we can set up transitional care to support your loved one in the Greenwich area.
