Short-Term Restorative Care (STRC) Programme


About Our Short-Term Restorative Care Programme

The Short-Term Restorative Care (STRC) programme provides personalised rehabilitation and support for older individuals aiming to regain independence and improve wellbeing.

BallyCara's approach to the STRC programme goes beyond physical rehabilitation, encompassing social engagement, mental health support, and lifestyle adjustments to foster holistic wellness.

 Key features include:

  • Multidisciplinary Care Teams
  • Rehabilitation Services
  • Personal Care
  • Social Engagement, and
  • A short-term duration of up to eight weeks

Each participant receives personalised care plans that address their specific goals and preferences, empowering them to actively participate in their recovery journey.

The program concludes with transition planning and follow-up support to ensure sustained progress.

STRC Services

Our STRC programme is known for its multidisciplinary approach, which involves collaboration among healthcare professionals such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses, and more.

This collaborative effort is provided over an 8 week period and aims to facilitate rehabilitation, enhance functional abilities, and promote independence following a hospital stay or during a period of decreased mobility.

BallyCara's STRC programme offers the opportunity to:

  • Improve your mobility
  • Increase your energy
  • Engage with your local community
  • Continue living independently in your own home for longer, delaying or avoiding the need to enter long term care

Each programme is developed in accordance with the Aged Care Quality Standards.


Our People

The Short-Term Restorative Care Programme is delivered by a consortium of different providers, including Wesley Mission and LifeTec. Depending on your individual needs, goals and preferences, different organisations and staff will be involved.



The Australian Government subsidises a range of aged care services and you are expected to contribute to the cost of your care if you can afford it. There is no income assessment for Short-Term Restorative Care and you will need to be assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team through My Aged Care.
