Home-based Post-acute Care

Post-Acute Care

Post-Acute Care is a vital phase of recovery that follows an acute medical stay at a public hospital, which focuses on continuous healing and rehabilitation. At Hub and Spoke Health, we recognise the significance of this stage and work with the major Melbourne Hospitals to offer specialised programs to aid in the post-acute journey.

What is Post-Acute Care?

Post-Acute Care (PAC) services refer to a range of healthcare services that are provided to individuals after they have been discharged from a hospital or other acute care setting. These services are designed to support patients in their transition from acute care to home or community-based care, and to facilitate their recovery and rehabilitation.

Post-Acute Care services typically include a multidisciplinary approach, involving a team of healthcare professionals who work collaboratively to provide comprehensive care. The exact services offered may vary depending on the specific needs and condition of the patient, but commonly include:

Home-based care: Hub and Spoke Health practitioners provide both Physiotherapy and Exercise Physiology services within the PAC realm.

What Are The Benefits of Post-Acute Care?

This essential phase of medical care extends beyond the hospital walls, providing a range of benefits that play a crucial role in optimising patient outcomes and overall well-being. Post-acute care encompasses a comprehensive and personalised approach, tailoring interventions to each individual’s specific needs and circumstances. 

By offering ongoing medical attention, rehabilitation, and support, this phase of care not only ensures a smoother transition from hospital to home but also prevents re-admission to hospital.

Melbourne Post-Acute Care: Your Pathway to Recovery

Post-Acute Care services are typically tailored to the specific needs of each patient and are aimed at promoting recovery, enhancing quality of life, and preventing rehospitalisation. These services are typically coordinated by a healthcare team that works closely with the patient, their family, and other healthcare providers to develop and implement a personalised care plan.

Hub and Spoke Health contributes to the patient’s ongoing rehabilitation by enabling a smoother transition from hospital to home. In doing so, we accelerate the healing process and minimise the risk of readmission or complications.

Hub and Spoke Health can help patients safely transition from hospital to home.
