Transitional Aged Care Packages (TACP)

The Transitional Aged Care Program (TACP) addresses the needs of older people who, in the absence of this program, would require residential aged care. It is a time-limited period of support support and low intensity therapy in a community setting. It provides older people who have been assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) as eligible for admission to residential care with an opportunity to optimise their functional capacity and determine their appropriate long-term care requirements.

Transitional Aged Care is available to older people at the conclusion of a stay in hospital. It occurs after the provision of any necessary acute and subacute care has been completed and is not a substitute for rehabilitation services.
