How Transitional Care in Annapolis Valley Reduces Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

The transitional care services we offer at Senior Homecare by Angels® in the Annapolis Valley, NS, help seniors make a full recovery following a hospital visit. While roughly one in five seniors discharged from the hospital is readmitted within 30 days, we aim to reduce these high rates of readmission. We do this by taking a three-prong approach to care. This approach offers non-medical services that help seniors in the hospital, during the transition home, and in the crucial few weeks following a hospital visit.

Why Readmission in the Annapolis Valley Occurs

When a senior has been discharged from a medical facility, they may still need to follow specific instructions in order to make a full recovery. This can be challenging for seniors who live alone, especially when they are faced with other age-related challenges. Seniors who have memory disorders may have a hard time remembering what medication to take when. Seniors with mobility issues may find it challenging to make it to follow-up medical appointments. They may be exhausted due to disrupted eating and sleeping schedules at the hospital and may have a hard time managing their disease or illness on their own. All these factors can lead to hospital readmission.
