Transitional Aged Care Program
Help at home after being in hospital
Our Transitional Aged Care Program (TACP) provides support to older people at home after a stay in hospital. To receive this help you must be approved for the program while you are still in hospital. Hospital staff such as Social Workers can discuss if TACP is the right service for you.
TACP can provide help with: managing health problems, walking, moving around in the home and outside, showering and dressing, cleaning, shopping, medications and going to the doctor.
TACP may charge a fee and this will be discussed before services start. If a person is unable to pay the fee they will not be refused the service.
For detailed information about the Transitional Aged Care Program go to the MyAgedCare website.
Please let us know if you need an interpreter. You can contact us telephoning the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS) on 131 450. Tell the operator what language you speak and then ask the interpreter to set up a telephone conversation between you, an interpreter, and the healthcare professional you want to speak with.
