Transition Care is a short term service for our older patients who have been in hospital and who now need extra time or additional therapy to improve their physical ability before going home or a supportive place while arrangements are made for them to go into residential care for the first time.

Transition care is:

  • Bed based - based at the Royal Melbourne Hospital Royal Park Campus
  • Home-based - where a case manager will develop a care plan and make arrangements with our patient and their family before they are discharged home.
