From hospital to a Brightwater home
After some time in hospital, you might still need support on your road to recovery.
While we do provide an at home service, transition care within a Brightwater residential aged care home may be more appropriate.
Brightwater Kingsley and Brightwater Birralee have been designed specifically for after-hospital care. Transition care gives you time to recuperate, make a decision about the best place to live long term, or await suitable accommodation.
Am I eligible for transition care?
To receive transition care, you will need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) while still in hospital. If approved, you will transfer to a Brightwater home for up to 12 weeks.
