Short Term Restorative Care (STRC)

Our short term program lets you take advantage of specialist knowledge to feel strong, healthy and happy again. Short-term Restorative Care (STRC) is specifically designed to help you recover from injury or illness.

The eight week long program aims to get you moving and helps you retain your independence at home while you get back on your feet. What’s more it is completely driven by you. You identify the goals and let us know what you’d like to achieve.

Not everyone needs ongoing support but when set backs arise it’s great to know there is help available; and now you are able to access short term help when you really need it.

Perhaps you have had a health set back, or are recovering from an accident or illness.  A hospital stay may have left you feeling uncertain about staying at home, or you may have a carer at home that needs a break.

Whatever your circumstances, Enrich has the right service available for you.  With the support of at least three care and /or clinical professionals we will develop a program specifically for you.

For up to eight weeks (56 days), Enrich can help you with a range of services in the program which could include –

  • Personal care, making sure you are ready to face the day feeling fresh
  • Transport, so you don’t miss out on appointments or outings
  • Home Modifications, keeping you moving independently and safely
  • Nursing, Physio and Allied Health Services, supporting all of your clinical needs
  • Meals and help with cooking, good nutrition is a key to your recuperation
  • Social Support, staying connected is keeping you healthy and happy

Access to a STRC program with Enrich ensures that you have the right people and services to get you back on track with the support you need.

The program helps you maintain your independence at home and get you back into your regular routine as quickly as possible. With a tailored program designed by your needs, over eight weeks we work together to deliver the program in the comfort of your home or within the community.

Am I Eligible for STRC?

You may be eligible for short-term restorative care services if you:

  • are slowing down mentally, or physically, or both
  • need help with everyday tasks, and
  • want to stay independent, and out of long-term ongoing care.

If you are receiving veteran services or support at home through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, you may still be eligible to receive short-term restorative care.

To find out if you are eligible please call our Home Care advisors on 1300 30 86 54

How do I Access STRC?

If your care needs indicate you might be eligible for short-term restorative care, you will be referred for an assessment by a member of your local ACAT. This assessment is free.

Your local ACAT member (usually a nurse, social worker or other health care professional) will make a time to come to your home and talk to you the assessment process and get an idea of how you are going in your every day life.
