Transitional Care Program

The Transition Care Program (TCP) provides short term care and services for older people (and sometimes younger people) after they leave hospital. By offering maintenance (low level) therapy and support the TCP allow older people to continue their recovery closer to home.

To receive TCP you will need to be assessed and approved by the Aged Care Assessment Services while you are in hospital. This will determine the type of TCP services you require.

For more information, please call our Nurse Unit Manager, Michelle Olton (03) 5159 0100.
