Concentric health at The Richardson.

The superb wellness facilities at The Richardson are some of the many features that set it apart from more traditional aged care homes.

Oryx and Concentric are proud to be offering residents an award-winning allied health and rehabilitation service, based onsite at The Richardson.

What does Concentric do?

  • Physiotherapy assessment and care plan
  • Occupational Therapy assessments and recommendations (specialised seating, splints & other assistive devices)
  • Podiatry treatment, assessment & care plan
  • Pain Management
  • Consistent team based onsite
  • Individualised wellness package

What is the wellness package?

The wellness package is an additional Concentric service provided by The Richardson to our residents. The Richardson is extending the current gym format and introducing specialist equipment for residents receiving one-on-one and group therapy. The wellness package has shown to preserve and improve the participant’s level of physical activity and mobility by addressing their specific impairments. It will also facilitate unlimited access to the gym during supervised hours and is a great way to encourage social interaction and engagement.

How does it work?

Every resident on the wellness package will first receive a comprehensive assessment. The outcomes of the assessment will be communicated to the clinical manager and the family. Based on the outcomes, the resident will then receive one of three wellness packages:

  1. Falls and Balance
    This package is tailored to improve balance and function to reduce the risk of falls. Targets: Balance, Social interaction, Cognitive function, Physical function.
  2. Strength and Mobility
    This package is tailored for residents with orthopaedic conditions (eg. Rotator cuff, post surgery). Targets: Reduction in pain, Improved range, Increased strength, Physical function.
  3. Functionality
    This package is specifically tailored for residents with neurological conditions who usually require two practitioners to assist for mobility or transfers (eg. Parkinson’s Disease, MS, post stoke). Targets: Maximising function, Increasing strength, Capacity building.
