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, 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
- 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. They will generally 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 if you need long term support to manage your condition or treatment.
