Barossa Village’s Transition Care Program (TCP) provides frail elderly and disabled people with short-term (up to 12 weeks) residential care or community care, including rehabilitation assistance following hospitalisation. The aim is to prevent inappropriate long-term residential aged care placement while providing appropriate community services to ensure safety and security at home.
We offer a range of TCP care services, including therapy, nursing support and/or personal care to help people return to their home and regain independence. We also develop medium to long term support programs for meals and personal care as required.
Transition Care is recommended by hospitals and requires an assessment from the Aged Care Assessment Team, who will meet with you and your family and assess your needs.

There is a daily care fee that you are required to pay. Barossa Village will discuss your payment options with you, which can be reviewed at any time during the program.
Transition Care services can be provided for up to 12 weeks, but the average program length is 8 weeks. The length of your program will depend on your progress during transition care and your individual care needs.
