Regain or maintain your independence through tailored short-term care and support in your own home.

Our care options

Wellness, reablement and restorative approaches are powerful ways to help older people improve their function, independence and quality of life.

Short-Term Restorative Care (STRC) Packages aim to reverse and/or slow ‘functional decline’ in older people and improve their wellbeing through flexible, time-limited care in a home setting.

You can receive therapy and support in your own home that is:

  • Focused on your individual goals
  • Focused on particular therapies
  • For a short-time only – usually eight (8) weeks

Services can include:

  • Case management
  • Bathing/dressing
  • House cleaning
  • Meals
  • Shopping
  • Gardening
  • Nursing (medication, wounds, etc)
  • Transport
  • Aids or equipment
  • Physiotherapy visits
  • Occupational therapy visits
  • Other allied health visits as required
