Transitional Care in Wichita Falls Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

As the caregiver for an elderly relative, you always do your very best for them. However, there may come a time when their needs may be greater than what you can provide. If you have a loved one scheduled to go into the hospital for surgery or other treatment, you may think that time is now. Considering how high the risk of a repeat visit is for a recently discharged senior, there is no time more important to make sure that their care is complete, which is where Visiting Angels® Wichita Falls can really help. Our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program helps to guide seniors in Wichita Falls home from the hospital without any hiccups.

What Are the Risks of an Unsupervised Homecoming?

If your loved one is coming home from the hospital into an empty house, their risk of readmission is especially high. With no one to help them keep track they may easily forget to take important medications or accidentally take a wrong dose. They are also at risk of pushing themselves too hard to get back into their old routines before they are really ready to do so. This opens them up to the possibility of worsening their condition and sending them back into the hospital. When you choose Visiting Angels Wichita Falls for your loved one's transitional care, they will receive our Ready-Set-Go Home guidebook which cautions them about these common errors and helps them practically plan for their release.
