NCCCA is able to provide services under the Transitional Aged Care Program (TACP). TACP provides short term care that aims to optimise the functioning and independence of older people after a hospital stay. It may include a package of services like low intensity therapy such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy, as well as social work, nursing support or personal care. It aims to enable older people to return home after a hospital stay rather than enter residential aged care.

You can be assured that NCCCA will provide compassionate person centred care and ensure safe care is delivered in collaboration with patients, families, carers and a multidisciplinary team to achieve identified goals and outcomes. You will be supported by a friendly and committed team.

The program cares for people who are:

  • 70 years of age and older
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders aged over 50 years
  • Have completed their acute and/or subacute care
  • Are medically stable and ready for discharge
  • Have capacity to benefit from individualised support and therapy
  • Have been assessed and approved by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT)
  • A person must enter the programme directly upon discharge from hospital.

Services are available to all pensioners, self-funded retirees and clients who are Department of Veteran Affairs funded.
