All applications for the Transition Care Programme/Care Awaiting Placement program Provider Panel are on hold while we review capacity requirements of the Provider Panel and the impact of COVID-19. Access to the Provider Panel should be expected to be back on line from 1 March 2021.
The Transition Care Provider (TCP) Panel is a panel of approved service providers engaged by SA Health to provide Transition Care Programme and Care Awaiting Placement programme services.
The Transition Care Programme provides short-term care that seeks to optimise the functioning and independence of older people after a hospital stay in assisting them to return to their home and avoid being prematurely admitted to residential aged care.
The Care Awaiting Placement programme seeks to enable eligible older people to safely transition from hospital to an interim placement in residential aged care where they receive support to finalise their arrangements for a long term placement..
Without these services, older people may experience inappropriate lengthy stays in a public hospital.
The TCP Panel is an essential component of the overall SA Health priority to improve the health and wellbeing of older people and alleviate demand on public hospitals.
