Greater support to transition to independent community living

2021-09-20

SA Premier and Minister for Human Services

Thirty additional places will begin to come online from Monday 20 September at the Repat Health Precinct in Daw Park to ensure South Australians living with disability get the care they need through the Transition to Home (T2H) service.

T2H allows people who are eligible for the NDIS to move out of an acute hospital setting and into a more home-like environment while they prepare for permanent supported community living.

NDIS participants in hospitals, for a range of health-related reasons, will benefit from preparing for more permanent supported community living arrangements – when they are ready. Away from an acute hospital environment.

The T2H model and T2H South works not only to create more capacity in hospitals, but also support people accessing it with support to regain their independence and rebuild important connections with their community.

Five beds will initially open in a dedicated refurbished area of the Repat Health Precinct with single bedroom options, recreation areas, access to outside space and the services and facilities across the precinct to support community members with more complex needs.

All thirty places are expected to be available by mid-November.

The Transition to Home service has been established through a collaboration between Department of Human Services, Wellbeing SA and Local Health Networks.
