The Transition Care Program - Home-based is a short term support service for older people after they go home from hospital. 

The program aims to provide additional support to help with the transition from hospital to home and support people while they wait for their long term care arrangements to start.

Before you are discharged home, our case manager with the Transition Care Program will meet with you and your family and discuss the help you need, develop a care plan and make the necessary arrangements before you leave to go home.

Our Transition Care Program case manager may arrange a number of services such as:

  • helping to access health services in the community
  • light gardening
  • bathing or showering
  • shopping
  • dressing and undressing
  • social activities
  • light housework and laundry
  • transport in some instances
