Suncare’s transition care services provide support and assistance for our customers who have been in hospital and require extra help to recover. Our services, offered in the Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay regions, include physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social work, nursing support or personal care.
Transition care programs are designed to maintain and improve physical or cognitive functioning during the first twelve weeks after returning home from hospital, enabling our customers to continue living independently in their homes, rather than entering residential care prematurely.
Services provided and the potential for recovery vary according to specific individual circumstances and needs.
An Aged Care Assessment Team assessment is required for access to transition care services and programs begin directly after discharge from hospital.
Transition care’s primary function is therapeutic.
For further details on eligibility or to learn more about the program call 1800 786 227.
