Transitional Care in Oklahoma City
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
When a parent or loved one is admitted to the hospital, the goal is often to get them better and get them home. Hospital stays disrupt the flow of daily life and may cause emotional and financial stress for families, so it is not surprising most seniors are anxious to return home as quickly as possible. Imagine the frustration at being discharged from the hospital, only to return within the first 30 days. For nearly 1 in 5 seniors, this is a reality.
