Transitional Aged Care Service

Iluka Community Health Transitional Aged Care

The Clarence Valley Transitional Aged Care Service (CVTACS) helps older people recover at home, rather than staying in hospital longer.

It offers goal orientated, time-limited and therapy-focused care to support older people to regain independence after a hospital stay.

People leaving hospital need different amounts of time to recover. Our service can help with a package of services for up to 12 weeks.

We can visit clients at home to help with daily or health care needs, so clients can lead a more independent life at home.

Our team works with the client and their carer, as well as a range of care providers and services:

* GP

* Physiotherapists

* Occupational Therapists

* Nurses

* Speech Therapists

* Dieticians

* Cleaning and shopping services

Together we plan and assist with therapy and support, including:

* Personal care

* Home exercise and mobility program

* Home safety check and provision of short term loan equipment

* Help with household cleaning and shopping

Clients must be medically stable and have a current Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) approval prior to leaving hospital.

The program accepts clients aged 65 years and over, or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients aged 50 years and over, or clients who have age-related illness.

Clients must be willing to participate in the program, with the potential to improve and achieve their personal goals in the community environment.

Hours: 8.00am – 4.30pm Monday to Friday
