Where the client has ceased to receive services for more than one reason, record the main or primary reason for the cessation of service.
CODE 1 Client no longer needs the assistance
Use if the client moved to mainstream services, for example from employment service to paid open labour market.
CODE 2 Client no longer needs the assistance
Use if the client's needs have decreased, are managing on their own, or making use of other assistance, or the original problem has been resolved or no longer exists.
CODE 3 Client moved to residential aged care
Use if the client has moved to a residential aged care facility.
CODE 4 Client moved to other (non aged care) residential or supported accommodation setting
Use if the client has moved to a supported accommodation/living facility (for example, group home).
CODE 5 Client moved to other institutional setting
Use if the client has moved to another institutional care setting (for example, hospital).
CODE 6 Client moved out of area
Use if the client has ceased to receive assistance from the service provider because the service user moved out of the geographic area of coverage of the service.
