Transitional Care in Tyler Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

When a senior is admitted to the hospital, their only thoughts are of getting well and going home. As a family caregiver, you probably feel the same. But once their hospital ordeal is over, and the recovery process begins, a senior still isn't truly in the clear. At home, there are new hurdles for them to overcome in order to fully regain their health and, unfortunately, those hurdles can do more than just hinder a senior's recovery - they can send them right back into the hospital. Transitional care from Visiting Angels® Tyler is designed to prevent that very thing by helping seniors to transition safely and seamlessly home from the hospital.

For a senior in fragile health, any length of hospital stay can be wearying. Nobody sleeps well when away from their own home and bed, and pain, soreness or weakness can make mobility more difficult than before. Without transitional care, your loved one is left open to an increased risk of slips and falls, incorrectly taken medications and other factors that frequently contribute to readmission. Transitional care form Visiting Angels Tyler can help your loved one recuperate safely at home.
