​Vivir Healthcare are excited to announce the expansion of our fully managed allied health services to now include podiatry.

To deliver these podiatry services effectively, Vivir Healthcare have established a strategic partnership with ethical allied health providers, HelpStreet. With Podiatry being at the forefront of HelpStreet's service delivery model, this partnership allows both providers to offer a full spectrum of allied health services.

Why is podiatry important?

The sole focus of podiatry is the prevention of lower limb complications and to ensure that the feet remain healthy, enabling patients to stay active and maintain their wellbeing.

Who are HelpStreet?

HelpStreet Healthcare is an ethical allied healthcare provider who deliver clinical services across Australia and New Zealand. Their fully managed and supported ethical based podiatry services sit at the forefront of their service delivery model.

HelpStreet has been providing high quality podiatry services for over 10 years with our primary focus being the delivery of services into residential aged care facilities across Australia. HelpStreet believes that the care of our elderly population should always be the highest priority.

“HelpStreet are excited to be forming this strategic partnership with Vivir Healthcare. It will allow us to deliver a much wider range of services to those who need it most.”

-David Lamb, CEO, HelpStreet

Why have we formed a strategic partnership?

Vivir Healthcare were eager to expand their service offering to clients to make their allied health services comprehensive and seamless. This provides clients with a more holistic option when it comes to continuity of care and a simpler solution when requiring various allied health services.

“We approached HelpStreet to see if they would be interested in forming a strategic partnership. We saw their values aligned with our own, with the care and wellbeing of senior citizens as their priority. We also saw the opportunity to expand our service offering to our clients, providing a more comprehensive and streamlined model.”

- Karen Leighton, Executive General Manager, Vivir Healthcare

Who are our podiatrists?

Our podiatrists are available to service our aged care customers. They are all Australian trained, fully qualified and AHPRA registered.

Our team of podiatrists are supported by a specialist clinical management team to ensure continued development and progression of all its staff.

What funding models do we support?

Vivir Healthcare can provide podiatry treatments utilising the Chronic Diseases Management Plan (CDM). The CDM is a Medicare-rebated funding program for people who have chronic medical conditions.
