Transitional Care in Wilmington Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
At Visiting Angels® Wilmington, we know that hospitalization is a scary time for families. You want your loved one home and healthy. Unfortunately, many seniors find themselves back in the hospital within 30 days of discharge. To help seniors in the Wilmington area transition home from a hospital stay with success, we offer our Ready-Set-Go Home program. This program offers non-medical transitional care at home to help seniors continue to rest, recuperate and avoid hospital readmission.
Transitional Care Solutions in Wilmington
At Visiting Angels Wilmington, we know seniors face many challenges while transitioning from the hospital back home to recuperate. That's why our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program offers solutions that begin at the hospital and continue to support your loved one at home.
Detailed follow up care plan.
