Live independently.  Achieve your lifestyle goals.  Stay safe in your own home.

Strong Foundations is a seven week wellness program designed to help you live life to the full, with confidence.

A qualified physiotherapist or exercise physiologist visits you at home every week for seven weeks and puts together a ‘daily habits’ program just for you. 

They take into account your lifestyle, find out what you love to do at home and then identify simple strength and balance exercises you can include in your daily routine.  We all know exercise is good for us and this makes it super easy.   

Learn to stand on one leg as you make a cup of tea, squat as you empty the dishwasher or walk from room to room on your toes. 

Strong Foundations is specifically designed to help prevent falls. By tailoring the program to your individual home environment, including steps or difficult to reach places, you can keep doing the things that matter most to you.

Our qualified professionals also show you how to do the exercises and measure the results. You can improve your strength, balance and agility, giving you the confidence to keep living well.

Am I eligible?

Older people can apply for the Strong Foundations program under the Home Care Package (HCP) and Short-Term Restorative Care (STRC) Program.  It is also available under the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) if you are over 65 (or over 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders).

What’s involved?

One of our physiotherapists or exercise physiologists will carry out an initial assessment in your home before designing a ‘daily habits’ program just for you.  They’ll then pop in every week for the next six weeks to see how you’re going with the program, make adjustments if needed and finally measure the results. 

Is there a cost for the program?

This program is available under the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP), the Home Care Package (HCP) and Short-Term Restorative Care (STRC).  Where you fit within these funding options will determine the cost.
