If you feel as though your wellbeing is declining, short-term restorative care can help reverse or slow the difficulties you are having with everyday tasks. The program is delivered by a team of health professionals to help you achievemanage your medical, physical, social and psychological needs. Short-term restorative care is tailored to your personal care requirements and will help you stay living independently in your own home. If eligible, you can receive short-term restorative care for up to eight weeks, twice in any 12-month period.

If you receive a Home Care Package, are receiving transition care after being in hospital or live permanently in an aged care facility, you cannot access short-term restorative care. You can however receive help from the program if you are on the Commonwealth Home Support Programme or veterans services.
