Transitional Care

For some older people, going home after a hospital stay can seem daunting. To make it easier, we run a Transitional Care Program to ease the transition and ensure they are ready and able to return home.

This program is very goal oriented, and has the aim to return the patient home as soon as practicable. Depending on their needs, our physiotherapist, occupational therapist and social worker are available – as well as the ongoing care and support from our qualified nursing staff.

To be eligible, the patient must be assessed by the aged care assessment team (ACAT) while still in hospital.
