From September 9, TLC Healthcare (TLC) will be introducing a rapid antigen testing program at their 11 residential aged care homes located across Melbourne and Geelong. This program is a critical step in preparing for the changes that will be introduced when 80% of the Australian population is vaccinated against COVID-19.
TLC Healthcare (TLC) has been awarded 205 subsidised residential aged care places in the 2020 Aged Care Approvals Round (ACAR), which is 100% of their requested places. This is the highest number of aged care places allocated to a single provider in Australia.
TLC Healthcare (TLC) is the first residential aged care provider to be given approval to directly administer the COVID-19 vaccine as part of the phase 1A roll-out of the national vaccination program. This is the first agreement of its type, aside from the current contractors engaged by the Government for the phase 1A roll out.
