From Hospital To Home

Care from where you’d rather be

It’s nice to have a little help around the house, especially if you’re recovering from an accident, illness, or routine procedure.

If you’ve spent some time in hospital, we can offer some relief.

We can help make the shift back home smooth and stress-free. On doctor’s orders, our transition care program can help you get back on your feet.

Transition Care Program

If you’re medically stable but still need time to recuperate, you can go home sooner with the Transition Care Program.

You’ll need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT), but don’t worry – hospital staff can help arrange that.

If you qualify, we’ll provide care services in your home for up to 12 weeks. Our trained team can provide all the assistance required, including:

  • Comprehensive clinical care
  • Occupational therapy support and assistance with equipment
  • Weekly physiotherapy in your own home
  • Speech therapy, diet, podiatry and reflexology services
  • Home Chef meals
  • A Tunstall personal alarm, if required

Ready to go home? Then talk to your hospital team about transition care.

Or if you just need a hand getting settled back in, call 1300 223 968.
