Retirement Villas

We deliver therapies directly to residents of retirement villas or independent living units.

ACRS delivers quality allied heath therapies including physiotherapy, podiatry and occupational therapy directly to residents of retirement villas and independent living units in retirement villages.

We understand that it can be inconvenient and difficult sometimes to travel to external health appointments. We bring our caring professionals to you by making high quality treatments available in the comfort of resident’s own retirement villas.

We are experienced in both aged care physiotherapy to deliver rehabilitation; occupational therapy to help seniors adapt to changed abilities and meet goals; and podiatry to keep active and healthy without foot pain.

Some of the areas we focus on include:

Other Residential Aged Care Services

Aged Care Funding

The Aged Care Funding Instrument (ACFI)

The Aged Care Funding Instrument (ACFI) is used to measure the level of care each aged care resident needs to allocate an Australian Government subsidy to providers to care for the residents in areas including Activities of Daily Living, Behaviour and Complex Health Care. 

It is considered an essential funding tool to help deliver the highest quality aged care. ACRS can help your facility maximise your government funding to provide the best quality allied health aged care services, delivering quality of life for your residents.

What is the ACFI?

The Australian Government subsidises a large proportion of the costs of running approved residential aged care homes. The amount of subsidy paid is based on your assessments of the residents’ ongoing care needs.

 

How does the ACFI work?

The ACFI consists of 12 questions about a resident’s assessed care needs, and two diagnostic sections. Needs are classified under the 3 funding domains of:

  • activities of daily living (ADL)
  • behaviour (BEH)
  • complex health care (CHC)

Pain Management

Chronic Pain in Residential Aged Care

Chronic pain in residential aged care patients is a significant health issue which can severely impact quality of life.  

Our qualified allied healthcare providers are experienced at managing pain through evidence-based practices which can decrease discomfort and distress and improve physical and mental wellbeing for residents. 

 Our providers develop evidence-based care plans to manage chronic pain, including in patients with dementia, brain damage, or a brain injury. 

Manual Handling

Manual Handling Training

Manual handling training helps your residential care team safely assist your patients, while preventing injuries to themselves and your residents. 

Our physiotherapists can deliver dedicated manual handling training for aged care to your team, helping them learn essential skills for manual handling, through a combination of theory and practice. 

This is highly recommended training to reduce risk and prevent injuries in your aged care facility.
