Wellness classes are now being offered on the newly-installed outdoor gym. The five-station gym can be used for balance, strength, and cardio exercises and will be incorporated into the wellness classes timetable.

The gym is surrounded by lots of colourful garden beds, with a large sail providing shade and weather protection.

An initial physiotherapy assessment is required before joining a group wellness class.

Fun in the Sun classes will begin on 17 October 2022 and are held on:

  • Mondays 1.15pm
  • Wednesday 9.15am
  • Thursday 9.15am
What do I need to bring to a group class?

For our groups, all equipment is supplied. It is recommended to bring a water bottle to keep hydrated and a towel if you prefer.

If there is something specific you are required to bring our Therapy and Wellness team will contact you.

If you are a private client, your private health care card will be required upon payment.

We request that all clients bring their Medicare cards with them for their first visit.

How much does a class/session cost?

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

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.

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.

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.

How much do services cost?

Services accessed through the Commonwealth Home Support Program are subsidised, and you will pay a contribution to help with the cost of services. How much you contribute depends on your income and the type and number of services you need. This will be discussed with you upon registration with our program.

You may be asked to pay one or both of the following under a Home Care Package:

  • Basic daily care fee equivalent to 17.5% of the single basic pension.
  • An income tested fee* may apply if your income is over a certain amount. This is determined by Department of Health and reviewed every quarter.
  • Case management fees apply to all Home Care Packages

*Please note: The Government will reduce the amount of subsidy it pays to your service provider (Alwyndor), based on the amount you are asked to pay as an income tested fee. The income test arrangements and the care subsidy are administered by the Department of Health.

You can contact the Department of Health on 1800 653 227 or My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to help estimate the fees and charges you may have to pay towards your package. Alternatively, you can use the calculator on the My Aged Care website www.myagedcare.gov.au
