exceptional podiatry care with a smile to boot
We are aged care podiatry specialists who work with facilities across Australia. For us, it’s more than aged care podiatry. It’s about creating strong relationships with residents, your staff and families where we are all working towards the same goal – wellbeing and happiness for our elders.
It’s our focus on ensuring both the emotional and physical wellbeing of residents within aged care facilities that sets us apart. Our podiatrist become an integral extension to your care team and the back end support offered by Dimple Support Hub means admin hassles are taken away.
Like you, we believe every resident deserves the best care, respect and a smile in their day. And together we know we can deliver what every resident needs: care that shines.
“The Dimple staff approach the residents in a friendly and caring manner, delivering timely and appropriate treatments. The podiatrist always communicates resident’s requirements to staff, which in turn optimises resident outcomes. The residents also enjoy the social interaction with the podiatrist.”

medicare cdm made easy
The Chronic Disease Management (CDM) program (formerly EPC) is an initiative by Medicare to improve the quality of life for Australians with chronic conditions or complex care needs. It provides them access to multiple types of care as recommended by their GP. If deemed eligible by their GP, your residents may be able to access up to five bulk-billed allied health treatments per calendar year, including podiatry. We support the maximisation of funding through the Medicare CDM program in line with legislative requirements and our dedicated Medicare team work with you to help you understand the process.
We ensure compliance by:
- Not processing any Medicare CDM claims without a GP referral
- Providing the first treatment letter to GP to outline assessment and management plan of resident
- Providing the last treatment letter to GP to outlining improvements and ongoing care needs
- Successfully passing all Medicare audits of our Company and podiatrists
- Remaining up to date with changes to the Medicare CDM program
- Ongoing communication with Medicare
For more information on the Medicare CDM program for podiatry please email our Medicare team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 1300 760 412.
podiatry for your veterans
If you have any of our brave veterans at your facility they may be eligible for podiatry services from Dimple under their Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Gold Repatriation Card or White Card. Services may include diagnosis, routine maintenance and physical therapy for feet. There are special rules about who is eligible to claim through the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and referral documents are a must from the veteran’s GP. For more details you can contact the team at the Dimple Support Hub by emailing email@example.com or calling 1300 760 412.
