About this program

In 2017, Resthaven was allocated 17 ‘places’ of the new Commonwealth Government service, Short Term Restorative Care (STRC). A working group developed an action plan to implement Resthaven’s restorative care program, using a nurse-led multidisciplinary team approach, and building on existing organisational experience, capacity and capability in wellness, reablement and
restorative care services.

An evaluation in May 2018 demonstrated the program is achieving quality outcomes for consumers through tailored assistance, aimed at supporting individuals to regain physical and emotional functional capacity; restoring their lives following “setbacks”; and postponing the need for higher level care.
