Hospital to Community Transition Service (HCTS) provides clients with intensive, non-clinical disability support for up to six weeks, following a planned discharge from hospital.
Clients returning to their own home with appropriate support receive assistance to strengthen or maintain the gains made in hospital, re-establish routine activities
and reconnect to social supports.
This service aims to address the housing needs of clients and, in turn, free up hospital beds by assisting clients to overcome common barriers such as a lack of social/family support at home, isolation from the community, or the need for assistance with household activities such as shopping, cooking and cleaning.
By providing an earlier discharge option and support at home, access to inpatient services and the rate of readmission may also be improved.
HCTS is delivered in partnership with NSW Health's Northern Sydney & Central Coast Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol (NSCCMHDA).
