The Commonwealth Short Term Restorative Care (STRC) Programme is an early intervention programme which aims to reverse or slow ‘functional decline’ in older people and improve wellbeing.  The goal is to improve the capacity and independence of older people, to enable them to remain living in, or return to, their homes. A form of flexible care provided over an eight week period, the programme delivers a goal orientated, multi-disciplinary and coordinated package of services tailored to the care recipient and can be delivered in the home, the community or an aged care facility.

Limited STRC packages are now available within South Australia. For further information on the programme including eligibility requirements, refer to the Short Term Restorative Care Programme Factsheet. For a list of approved providers and how to refer in South Australia, refer to SA Health Short Term Restorative Care Referrals Factsheet
