Our Day Therapy Centre is located in the grounds of St Vincent’s Residential Care on the banks of the Swan River in Guildford.
Services offered are available for you to help maintain, restore or develop your skills so you can stay healthy, confident, and happy in your home and community.
A program will be created just for you by our team of skilled allied health professionals, regardless of the level of support you need. Specialists include physiotherapist, occupational therapist, accredited dietician, podiatrist, and nutritionist. Depending on your needs our health care workers will create a program to support you to continue to do the things you want and love to do.
Our therapy is based on reablement and wellness. Getting you back to doing those everyday tasks at home that can sometimes become difficult to manage is ours and your health care team’s priority. Our group exercise sessions and programs at the new gym are very popular. You can take part in cooking classes in the new kitchen, and then enjoy the food you’ve prepared for lunch. We also offer art sessions and vibrant, interesting, educational, and memory-based activities. Other services can always be arranged to support you to live your best life.
One of the best parts of the Day Therapy Centre which can’t be overlooked as incredibly important, is the friends and companionship you will make. Coming on a regular basis will see you develop relationships with not only our team, but with others who take part as well.

Why Home Care?
There are many reasons why you might consider Home Care: You may be having more trouble doing things that were easy, experienced a change in your health or returned home from hospital.
Everyone values their independence which means you don’t need to give up your freedom being just because you might need a hand with the day-to-day.
People want to be safe and happy at home and Home Care is all about maintaining your choice and independence and includes a comprehensive case management service.
How do I apply for Home Care?
To gain access Home Care you will need an assessment arranged through the Australian Government’s entry point into aged care services, My Aged Care.
To qualify for an assessment you’ll be aged 65 years or more or aged 50 or more for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people and meet requirements set out by My Aged Care.
If you’re not sure how the process works, please call our Home Care Team on 1300 244 000.
Who is eligible for Home Care?
Eligibility for government-subsidised Home Care is based on your needs and circumstances and is determined by an individualised assessment by specialists from My Aged Care and relevant assessment bodies.
What is a RAS?
For those who require lower levels of support, their assessment will be done by the Regional Assessment Service.
A face-to-face or phone assessment will quickly determine if you can assess entry-level services under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme some of which can be provided by Catholic Homes.
