Short Term Supports 

Short Term Supports (STS) provide community based services to assist people to recover after being discharged from hospital. Services may be provided up to 28 days post discharge from a public hospital (acute or sub-acute) or the emergency department, including Department of Veterans Affairs and Transport Accident Commission clients. The program aims to prevent hospital readmissions.

Allied Health and Nursing staff within STS are known as Health Coordinators.
Health coordinators:

  • Coordinate services
  • Motivate & Educate
  • Liaise with doctors, health professionals and service providers

We provide services based on the person's individually assessed needs. 

Services Available:

  • Home Care Services
    Help with a range of home care tasks, such as heavier cleaning tasks and /or meal preparation.
  • Personal Care
    Help with showering and dressing.
  • Nursing Care
    Wound care, help with medications or other nursing care.

STS can provide information about:

  • Transport options

  • Respite

  • Allied Health

  • Shopping and food services.

  • Accessing longer-term supports

STS works in conjunction with - but does not replace - the services provided by other programs, such as Community Home Support Program (CHSP) Home and Community Care (HACC) or the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). 

Fees and Charges 

There are no fees for Short Term Supports.
