Transitional Care in Temple Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Having a loved one admitted to the hospital is stressful for the entire family. In addition to your concern for their health, an immense amount of stress can be caused by coordinating transportation, visits, and liaising with medical staff. That's where transitional care from Visiting Angels® Temple can help.  Our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program provides caregiver companions who bring comfort and support directly to your loved one. Our professional staff can also coordinate logistics behind the scenes so that all your loved one has to worry about is getting and staying well.

After an extended stay in the hospital, a senior's homecoming should be a joyful one. However, too often, that joy is diluted by other emotions - such as concerns about your relative's well-being during the next stage in their recovery. A long period spent bedridden and frequent disturbances to sleep and meal times may have left them more fragile than before their admission. Without hospital staff to keep a constant eye on them, it is easy for accidents to occur, like mistaken medications or falling out of bed. Rather than leave them open to such risks, you can enlist the help of a skilled professional caregiver from Visiting Angels Temple to provide transitional care at home.
