Post-acute care

Post-acute care is support that continues your recovery and helps you maintain your health after a stay in hospital. 

Post acute care with Health Choices

It could include assistance with managing your condition in your home, or support with certain aspects of your recovery or treatment.

We offer a range of post-acute care services that help you transition from hospital to home, continue your return to full health and avoid unexpected readmission to hospital.

Our post-acute care service

Some of the services we offer through post-acute care include:

  • wound care – monitoring wound healing and attending to wound care and dressings
  • Drain management – maintenance and monitoring of output
  • medication management – administration of medication or education on how to self-administer
  • personal care – assistance with showering and dressing while recovering from surgery.

Accessing our post-acute care services

You need a referral from a hospital to access our post-acute care services. The hospital will fill in the referral form and organise for you to have the services provided once you are discharged home.

Normally, we see patients for a short period of time and we liaise with your referring hospital and specialist if you need long term support to manage your condition or treatment.
