Cairns Home Care Packages can incorporate a range of services tailored to meet individual presenting needs. Wellness Embodied works with a number of Cairns Home Care Package providers and Aged Care providers to provide physiotherapy, exercise physiology, occupational therapy and naturopathy. We have teams of Allied Health professionals in Cairns and Cooktown, ready to support you with your Home Care Package.


Cairns Home Care Packages (HCP) can be used for a variety of services that we provide at Wellness Embodied. To ensure our care is tailored to best suit your needs, we work with your HCP manager and family / friends to complete an individualised assessment and provide treatment specific to you and your unique goals. It’s our goal to keep more seniors independent in their own homes, with safety, mobility and confidence.


HCP are a federally funded initiative designed to provide older Australians with access to affordable care, which enables them to stay in their homes. There are also Short Term Restorative Care Programs and Transitional Care Programs. You may be eligible if you want to stay independent, but need some assistance with every days tasks and support with your movement, mobility and functioning.


Our team of Allied Health professionals provide services to Cairns Home Care Package recipients and those in Cooktown. In addition to physiotherapy in home and clinic, we offer exercise physiology and naturopathy. Our team are committed to helping keep you active and doing what you love, for as long as possible. We encourage family and friend involvement in your care.


Whether you are on a Cairns Home Care Package, Short Term Restorative Care Program or Transitional Care Program from hospital, we will tailor your assessment and treatments to you. Our team are based in Cairns and Cooktown and treatments can be provided in our clinics, your home, aged care facility or other location relevant to treatment (for example swimming pools for Hydrotherapy).

What Are The Terms

If you are eligible for the Short Term Restorative Care program, you can receive short term restorative care for periods up to eight weeks, twice in a 12 month period. If you are receiving a Home Care Package or Transitional Care following a hospital stay, you cannot receive Short Term Restorative Care.


Our experienced team have varying areas of clinical expertise and interest. This includes but is not limited to the following.


We work with a number of local Cairns Home Care Package providers and Aged Care providers, as well as their peers in Cooktown.

They have great physios, who get to know you as a person, not just your illness. They also do nice little personal touches, like sending you a birthday message or checking in via text to see you're ok after a treatment.
