Wellness Classes

Staying healthy and active can change the way you age and help you maintain your independence and wellbeing.

We offer a variety of group wellness programs. Group programs are led by therapists or trained allied health assistants.

All groups are available to people over the age of 65, or for those living with a chronic medical condition or disability. Before joining a group program all clients are required to attend an assessment with either the physiotherapist or occupational therapist, at which time the individual’s needs, goals and abilities will be considered. All groups and services aim to enhance your wellbeing through different approaches including exercise, activities, and social interaction.

Clients participating in a group program will be reviewed either on completion of the group (for short-term programs) or at a minimum every 12 months for ongoing groups (more frequently at the request of the client, allied health assistant or therapist).

Please contact our Customer Care team on 8177 3200 to discuss booking in for an assessment, the pricing structure for classes, and to ask about our offer for a free come-and-try session.

Who is eligible for Therapy and Wellness services?

Therapy and Wellness Services funded through the Department of Health are for people who are over 65, no longer working and who have registered with My Aged Care.

Private services are available to anyone.

Do I need to make a booking for therapy or group wellness sessions?

Yes, bookings are required. If you require an urgent appointment, please contact our Customer Care Team on 8177 3200 and we can do our best to fit you in at the earliest time available.

What happens if I am unable attend the class?

If you are booked in for a class and can’t attend, you must let us know so the place can be given to another client.

If we don’t hear from you after 4 weeks, you will be placed on the “Waitlist” if:

  • There is non-attendance in a class for 4 weeks or more without notification.
  • If you have advised us you will be away for more than 4 weeks in a row.
  • If you are unwell and cannot attend and this stops you from attending 4 weeks in a row.

When you are ready to return to your class, PLEASE contact Customer Care to discuss your position on the waitlist, as just turning up may result in being turned away if the class is already full.

How much does a class/session cost?

Fees will vary depending on whether you are a private client or receive government subsidies.

For information regarding our fees for Therapy and Wellness services or a group, please contact our Customer Care team at 8177 3200.

What type of referral do I need for Therapy and Wellness services?

We accept referrals from My Aged Care for funded services through the Department of Health. We accept GPs, medical specialists, other allied health professionals, carers and self referrals for private services.

For more information, please contact our Customer Care team on 8177 3200.
