Specialised Transitional and Restorative Support (STARS) Program

The Southern Adelaide Local Health Network (SALHN) is taking over governance of the 40 beds located in the VITA building at the Repat Health Precinct from Monday, 1 May 2023.

From this date, the service will be called the Specialised Transitional and Restorative Support (STARS) program, located on the ground and first floor of the VITA building. For specific location information, see Contact details.

What types of services are provided?

  • focuses on your own goals and what you want to achieve
  • offers a range of therapies (such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy), using a low intensity approach, to help achieve your goals
  • provides assistance with personal care and nursing support as required
  • provides time for you to make choices about your future care.

How long can I stay on the program?

The length of your program will depend on your progress during STARS and your individual care needs. Your progress is reviewed regularly whilst you are on the program. If you require ongoing supports at the end of the program, we will discuss longer term care with you.

What if I’m already receiving services through a different program?

You are a SALHN inpatient while part of the STARS program, therefore you cannot receive other services during this time. We will assist you to re-engage with any of your existing services at the time of discharge back to the community.

Who pays for STARS program services?

STARS is a public hospital program. There is no cost for you to access this program.
