Transitional Care

What is Transitional Care?

The Transitional Care Program provides nursing support, personal care, physiotherapy and other allied health disciplines, medical support and case management. TCP can be provided as a bed based service, either in low or high level residential aged care or as a home based service.

All TCP care recipients work with their case manager and care team to establish their goals and develop their plan of care. It is expected that this plan will be regularly reviewed and updated as their care needs change.

A TCP is time-limited. The amount of time required will depend on an individual’s situation. However, the most common scenarios are as follows:

Usually people stay on the program for six to eight weeks and the limit is 12 weeks. Within this time, it is expected that people will have been assisted to access suitable longer-term care and support.

If further therapeutic benefit is possible, the program may request an extension from the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) for a maximum period of 42 days (or 6 weeks). A further extension cannot be requested for a person who has already received the maximum extension during a particular period of care.

Transitional person-centred is a collaborative approach to achieve the best possible outcome for the person. This means involving them in discussions, planning and decision-making for the future. that aims to minimise the number of older people experiencing inappropriate extended hospital lengths of stay and/or being prematurely admitted to residential care.
