Physio Program

MiCare is a trusted and recommended provider of the Veterans' Home Care (VHC) Program.

Improving balance, preventing falls

Falls are a leading cause of injury for people over 65, and the recovery is often long and painful. By improving your strength, flexibility, balance, and reaction time, you can significantly reduce your risk of having a fall. Research has shown that even in their 90’s, people can avoid falls by participating in an evidence-based Falls & Balance Physio program. Our tailored program offers an effective and affordable way to increase your strength, balance, and stability so you can live safely at home.

Are you an eligible Veteran, widow, or widower?

The first step to accessing the Veterans’ Home Care Program is organizing an assessment. To be eligible for an assessment, you must be:

  • A Veteran Gold Card holder
  • A Veteran White Card holder with an accepted service-related condition or injury
  • A carer or family member of the above (eligible in some cases)

To get started, contact your Veterans’ Home Care Assessment Agency on 1300 550 450. If you’re not eligible for an assessment, or you are waiting to be assessed, we can still support you with our Private Home Care services.

I would like to thank you and MiCare for giving me this opportunity to have a laptop to study the IT program as I will start the course soon. The course will be two days in the class face to face and two days online so it helps me saving time to study at home instead of going to the library.
