Step-Down Care provides an opportunity for children and families to adjust to the transfer from hospital to home.
What is Step-Down Care?
Step-Down Care is a placement for a fixed time frame during which we will work with you to ensure that the supports are in place for your child to be discharged home from hospital. We offer support aimed at empowering you to care for your child at home.
How will this benefit your child and family?
- We will develop a clear plan for supported home discharge in partnership with parents and doctors
- Provide professional support for children and their families throughout the transition
- Provide education & training to parents and carers
- Co-ordinate community supports and services
If appropriate, Planned Short Break Stays are available following discharge from Step-Down Care.
