Enhancing your wellbeing, independence and quality of life

What is the Short-Term Restorative Care (STRC) Program?

The Short-Term Restorative Care Program provides older West Australians with a range of health-related services to help you optimise your wellbeing and independence. 

A dedicated service coordinator will work with you to develop a goal-oriented care plan and arrange support services to be delivered to you for up to 8 weeks.

STRC is delivered in the form of a tailored, multidisciplinary package of services which includes the provision of services and assistance such as physiotherapy, social work, nursing support, personal care and the provision of assistive technologies.

Short-term restorative care provides a range of care and services for up to eight weeks (56 days) to help prevent or reduce difficulties older people are having with completing everyday tasks. It aims to improve wellbeing and independence to help them continue living in their own home and can be accessed twice in any twelve month period.
