Changing the healthcare environment in which you or a family member are cared for can be tricky. New routines and protocols might have to be established, and it’s crucial not to interrupt care practices which are working well. That’s where transitional care comes in. We can offer the support you need to help bridge the gap - if you’re moving from a hospital environment back to your home, for example. Our care providers can provide continuity and consistency of care as you or your loved one settles in a new healthcare environment - making the process smooth, and ensuring there are no setbacks.
What Is Transitional Health Care?
San Antonio Home Health Care Services offers transitional care for patients who are moving from one healthcare setting to another. This might be a process of moving from a hospital environment back to home, to receive healthcare support in a more familiar environment, for example. Transitional healthcare may be offered for a longer or shorter period depending on the situation. Depending on the issues you and your family face, transitional care may be used, for example, to help to establish the best ways to care for loved ones with chronic or acute conditions, or who are recovering from surgery, at home.
Transitional Care Models
You may have heard of the transitional care model being discussed by your healthcare providers. This model is designed to help combat a number of common issues, such as re-hospitalizations of patients who have been discharged. It’s unfortunately very common for patients to be released from hospital only to need to return within 30 days, because they have not been able to manage their own ongoing healthcare at home in the way intended. This may be because they are not familiar enough with the medication they must take, or lack confidence or skill with other aspects of managing their own condition. Transitional care bridges this gap, by providing skilled help during changes to the healthcare setting.
Benefits Of Transitional Care
Transitional care is a crucial step in providing a smooth and stress free transition from one healthcare environment to another. To give a common example, if you or a family member have been receiving care in a hospital, and are coming to the point at which you may be released to your home, transitional care can help to make sure you’re receiving the vital support needed to continue your recovery in a new setting, covering medication management, wound care and more. Transitional care from San Antonio Home Health Care Services can help make sure you can continue to receive the very best medical care, no matter what the challenges you face, in an environment that is comfortable to you.
