Working in Healthcare has never been more important or meaningful  

Our Journey

The Monash at Home – Aged and Rehabilitation Care service, previously GEM at Home, launched in December 2020 and is a fundamental part of the broader Aged and Rehabilitation Division, providing safe and high-quality home-based subacute level care for individuals with complex medical, functional, and often cognitive issues, who require comprehensive, medically led multidisciplinary assessment and optimisation.   

The service is seen as an alternative to hospital-based subacute care, designed to facilitate an earlier discharge from acute care and/or to avoid a subacute hospital stay entirely. Patients within the service receive at least daily visits from a member of the multidisciplinary team and access to 24-hour telephone support.?The model of care aims to provide short term, high quality, safe and effective patient centred care to individuals within the primary Monash Health catchment. The Program is entering an exciting phase of growth. The Monash at Home - Aged and Rehabilitation Care service will be operating out of 2 sites which include Kingston Centre and Cranbourne.  It is expected that this role will be based mainly out of the Cranbourne site.
