We help patients make informed choices about their future accommodation needs. We aim to maintain and optimise the individual’s functional capacity with a multidisciplinary approach to:
- activities of daily living and ability to manage personal cares
- mobility and physical capacity maintenance or improvement where feasible
- leisure skills
- medication management
- diet and nutrition
- pain management
- education on chronic diseases
- preparation for discharge to a residential facility.
How to access this service
Referrals to interim care can be made by any member of the patient’s hospital treating team and must be assessed or deemed to be eligible by the Aged Care Assessment Service. Patients must have consented to the Residential Aged Care Pathway.
Visiting hours for this facility have changed. Visitors are welcome between 11.00 am – 8.00 pm daily.
Where visitors are not able to visit within these times please contact the Nurse Unit Manager or Case Manager of the area. Children are welcome to visit as long as they are in the care of a responsible adult. Visitors are asked to consider the needs of other patients in the room and common areas of the facility.
There may be times when visitors are asked to leave, so that treatment or care can be provided.
We appreciate everyone’s co-operation and understanding.
