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.
TLC Healthcare (TLC) will be amongst the first aged care providers to vaccinate its residents against COVID-19. TLC has received confirmation that a government team will commence administering the vaccine to its residents at Homestead Estate, at Wallington outside Geelong, on Monday February 22, as early as 8:00am, as part of Phase 1A of the national vaccination roll-out strategy.
