Transition Care Program
The Transition Care Program provides short-term support and management for older people, after a stay in hospital. Participants are provided with a care package of services as part of an ongoing but slower recovery process, while options for their longer term care arrangements are considered.
- supports older people who require more time and support to heal and to improve their health outside the hospital
- allows older people to return home rather than enter residential care
- provides case management and after hours contact in the case of emergency
- gives older people time to finalise their long-term care arrangements.
What is the transition care program?
The transition care program is suitable for older people at the end of their hospital stay. The program includes:
- short-term support – up to 12 weeks
- active management of care by staff
