Continuing Care Communities: The Importance of Transitional Care

Think about your most complex or life-changing healthcare experience. It was probably a significant amount of work to navigate. Scheduling tests and appointments, getting referrals, filling prescriptions—maybe more. Now imagine navigating that experience with poor vision, mild-to-moderate dementia, severe pain or multiple chronic illnesses. The complexity of a healthcare journey for many older adults can become nearly impossible to manage.

Transitional Care is the Solution

Effective transitional care can create a highway out of this winding healthcare road. Transitional care helps a patient to move safely and efficiently through the healthcare continuum via a series of connected processes and services. Suddenly, what was once a challenge for many older adults is much more manageable.

The Advantages of Transitional Care

When provided well, transitional care can:

  • Significantly improve clinical outcomes
  • Reduce hospital readmissions
  • Considerably improve patient satisfaction
