C.A.R.E. Lifestyle Program
Do you have a chronic health disease or condition? Are you in pain, feeling tired, overweight or just unhappy? You may be eligible for entry into our 8 week CARE Lifestyle Program via a Doctors referral under Medicare (completely bulk billed). The C.A.R.E. Lifestyle program is held exclusively at our Campbelltown practice inside FIT HQ.
Developed by our Principal Physiotherapist and Accredited Exercise Physiologist Andrew Cooke the C.A.R.E Lifestyle Program stands for: “COPING”, “ACTIVITY”, "RECOVERY" and “EATING”. It aims to teach participants about how to engage in regular activity, healthy eating and coping techniques for those times where motivation to live a healthy life is challenged.
In 2014-2015 almost 400 people completed the program from over 10 referring Doctors with the following average results:
- 3-5kg weight loss
- 3-5cm loss of waist girth
- 3-5 year reduction in metabolic age (internal age)
What's included in the C.A.R.E. Lifestyle Program?
- An 8 week program
- 3 group exercise classes a week
- 3 health assessments
- 1-2 one on one training sessions with our Exercise Physiologists or Physiotherapists
- Free 2 month gym membership at FIT HQ
How can I join the program?
Your Doctor needs to decide your eligibility for an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan under Medicare so you need to speak to your Doctor regarding Exercise Physiology, Physiotherapy or Dietitian treatment under Medicare.
If you are a DVA patient with a gold card you can speak to your Doctor about being referred under a D904 referral for physiotherapy.
If you are not eligible for Medicare or DVA then we offer the program privately (Health Fund rebates available for physiotherapy and exercise physiology). Please call the Campbelltown clinic on 4627 6375 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our friendly receptionists will provide more information.
