Short-Term Restorative Care Program

Are you

  • Slowing down mentally or physically, or both?
  • Needing help with everyday tasks?
  • Wanting to stay independent and in your own environment?

The Short-Term Restorative Care Program offers your the ability to receive care in your home, in a facility, or a mix of these depending on your individual circumstances. The decision is based on your own needs and preferences.

There is a wide range of support services available from nutritional advice, personal care & assistance, to physiotherapy and occupational therapy.

The services are provided over an 8 week period to improve your well-being, help you stay independent, delay or avoid the need to enter long term care and improve your ability to undertake everyday tasks.


The Australian Government subsidises a range of aged care services and you are expected to contribute to the cost of your care if you can afford it. There is no income assessment for Short-Term Restorative Care and you will need to be assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team through My Aged Care.

I would like to thank our Government for providing this program and I would like to thank BallyCara in particular for the way it was presented. This was only possible because of the care, concern and dedication of the staff. I thank those staff with whom I was associated, very especially. I shall miss you all.”
