Short-Term Restorative Care Programs


If you are over 65 and have had an accident, injury or illness, a Short-Term Restorative Care (STRC) program with BCR Communities can have you feeling like yourself again.

Government funded through My Aged Care, the tailored program coordinates a team of specialists to help restore your health, strength and independence and
prevent functional decline.

Our experienced care experts will help you identify the areas you need support and what you would like to achieve. They will then find the relevant Allied Health specialists and create a program that is unique to you.

Over eight weeks we will coordinate with these specialists to deliver the program in either the comfort of your own home or out in the community.

What could my package include?

  • Occupational therapy

  • Physiotherapy

  • Exercise physiology

  • Social work

  • Podiatry

  • Daily living aids

  • Home modification

  • Dietary advice

  • Optometry

  • Registered Nursing

  • Speech therapy

  • Audiology

  • Pharmacy

  • Dental hygiene

  • Osteopathy

  • Psychology

  • Assistance in the home like cooking, cleaning and personal care

How long can I receive STRC for?

You can receive short-term restorative care for periods up to eight weeks, twice in any
12 month period.

Can I receive STRC if I already receive HCP or CHSP?

You will not be eligible to receive short-term restorative care if you already receive a Home Care Package. You can still access the program if you receive support from CHSP but only if the services received from STRC are different and complimentary.

"The STRC program with BBCR was absolutely wonderful, it included physiotherapy twice a week and an occupational therapist came to the house and gave me special equipment to use in the kitchen. It really made a difference to my overall mobility and well-being."
