Transition support from hospital to home
You can transition from hospital to home confidently with us because we know what it takes. We have supported people with spinal injury return home for more than 30 years.
- meet with you in hospital to develop a plan for living at home
- select support staff you feel comfortable and confident with in your own home
- arrange for someone to support you on a weekend pass home before discharge from hospital.
We also support people from regional areas.
