Feros Care - Short Term Restorative Care (STRC)
Our 8-week program is designed to help you recover from an injury or illness, improve your wellbeing
and help you to stay independent. You’ll work with a team of health professionals to work out what
you want to achieve and the best ways to get there.
Over the 8-weeks and depending on what your goals are, you’ll be
supported by the likes of dietitians, psychologists, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists
and podiatrists. We will also be able to provide innovative new technologies to keep you safe and
secure, monitor your health or even connect you socially.
WHAT SERVICES CAN I GET?
There’s a wide range of services and activities to improve your wellbeing from one-on-one allied health services, weight management, pain management to group exercise classes, yoga, hydrotherapy classes, and much more. We can also provide personal care, nursing, transport, simple technologies and a range of support services to assist you around your home and to connect with the community.
