Holistic programs bringing positive movement and well-being to SummitCare communities.

Here at SummitCare, we see great value in our allied health care professionals. Thanks to Golden Age Physiotherapy and HealthStrong under Medibank Health, our communities are seeing the benefits of their combined expertise.

By using tailor-made programs, specifically designed for improving outcomes in aged care residents, we're seeing them maintain and maximise their strength, mobility and function in a fun and enjoyable group environment.

In aged care, it can be all too easy for physical and mental wellbeing to decline. However, at SummitCare we make it our priority to bring physical movement and inclusive group activities to the forefront, allowing our residents to keep themselves moving and active under professional care whilst also bringing a social and fun element to the activities.

Our Golden Age Physiotherapy and HealthStrong activities include:

  • Daily functional exercises
  • Massage and stretching
  • Seated balance training
  • Resistance exercise
  • Individualised and group exercise activities
"Thanks to these activities, my dad has regained his ability to sit safely and comfortably in a raised seat. With assistance he can manage to bring the spoon towards himself with his right hand and eat." - Daughter of SummitCare Canley Vale resident
