The Transitional Care Program (TCP) provides care and restorative services for a short term period for older people who have been in hospital. By offering low level therapy and support it allows people to be discharged quicker and continue their recovery out of the hospital system, while appropriate long term care is arranged.
TCP services can be provided either in your own home or in a bed based service.
A case manager will assist you in managing your care. They will meet with you and your family/carer to discuss, plan and manage your care. In consultation, the case manager will develop a care plan that describes your needs and outlines the services to be delivered, such as:
- Occupational Therapy
- Allied Health Services
- Personal care
The period of time that you will need to be on the program will be discussed with you at admission and through your time on the program to discharge.
The Transition Care Program is NOT a long term arrangement.
