How Transitional Care in West Houston Reduces Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

For seniors, the time following a stay in the hospital is as important as the time in the hospital itself. Time after an operation or other procedure is crucial to their health because during that time seniors are particularly prone to re-injury and readmission, particularly if they don't have enough support at home. Transitional care from Visiting Angels® Westchase provides seniors in West Houston with the monitoring and support that they need to come home from the hospital and stay home. With the perfect combination of compassion and skill, our companion caregivers can guide your loved one smoothly through the recovery process. 

Is Your Loved One in West Houston at Risk of Readmission?

After being hospitalized in West Houston, seniors without transitional care face an alarmingly high rate of readmission, but why exactly is that? Recently hospitalized seniors are especially fragile and without support can easily fall victim to re-injury or even new injuries for any number of reasons. They may have trouble following through with discharge instructions or have difficulty getting access to the supplies or equipment they need. They may forget to take important medications or fill their prescriptions. Perhaps they try to push themselves too hard, too soon. Whatever the case may be, transitional care in West Houston can help prevent them from doing anything that will set their progress back.
