About Monash Health

Monash Health is an impressive organisation of seven public hospitals, 21 community health sites, five aged care facilities, university affiliated international research and tertiary education.

About The Transition Care Program

The Transition Care Program (TCP) is a major policy initiative between the State and Commonwealth Governments.

The TCP aims to minimise the number of older people experiencing inappropriate extended hospital lengths of stay, being prematurely admitted to residential care and/or prevent unnecessary presentations or admission to the Emergency Department. The program provides short term support and active management for older people at the interface of the acute/subacute and aged care (i.e. Community and residential) sector. The program is goal orientated to optimise the patient’s functional capacity and to finalise and access their longer term care arrangements or maintenance at home.

The TCP can be provided as a bed based or as a home based service. By offering case management, low intensity therapy and personal support, TCP allows older people more time and support in a non-hospital environment to complete their restorative processes, optimise their functional capacity and finalise their long term care arrangements.
