Short Term Restorative Care (STRC) a government funded program, provides early intervention care aimed at improving and optimising your independence. BlueCross can provide support in your home or in an aged care residence or a combination of both. The care is tailored to suit individual needs and is available for up to 8 weeks, per person, twice per year. Therapy and support can include domestic duties, personal hygiene assistance, meal preparation, transport, shopping, physio visits and other allied health service visits as required. STRC is aimed at restoring your independence after a health setback and we’ll work with your GP and allied health staff to provide you with holistic care.
