How Transitional Care in Virginia Beach Reduces Hospital Readmissions
When a senior undergoes surgery or other in-hospital procedure, most families are most concerned with the outcome of the procedure itself. However, the reality is that the time after an operation is one of the most critical, with nearly 20 percent of discharged patients winding up back in the hospital within 30 days of their release.
So how can you help prevent your loved one from becoming a part of that unfortunate statistic? Transitional care may be the answer. That why Visiting Angels® of Virginia Beach offers our 3-pronged Ready-Set-Go Home program which helps seniors in North Virginia Beach stay on track to recovery by providing them with the support they need, both in the hospital and at home.
How Transitional Care Helps Seniors in Virginia Beach Who Struggle With Post-Hospitalization
In order to ensure that seniors undergoing an operation have everything they need from start-to-finish, our caregivers at Visiting Angels of Virginia Beach provide several options for transitional care that combine to provide truly comprehensive support.
We address a senior's needs on three levels, including:
At the Hospital
Seniors often need support even before they come home. A companion caregiver can act as their advocate while they're in the hospital and help ensure they understand the information and instructions they're given.
Back at home, many seniors will need help with aspects of their daily routine, particularly if they are confined to their bed or a chair. The help of a home care provider from Visiting Angels of Virginia Beach can help prevent them from overexerting themselves by assisting with everyday household tasks like doing laundry and running errands. We can also ensure that they're following hospital discharge instructions, like attending physical therapy sessions or following a specific diet from their health care provider.
