Home Care

MACS has been operating this community service since 2003. It is focused on the needs of elderly individuals from CALD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) backgrounds in the Greater Geelong and Western Metropolitan Regions, who need support with respect to home care or palliative care. Our services are also available to anglo-saxons.

Residential Care

Individualised person-centred care based on assessed needs, together with accommodation, is provided in Borrela House, Mary Costa House, Annie O’Malley House and Gerda’s House for 94 permanent and 2 respite (short stay) elders. Accommodated in single rooms, residents have a shared or personal ensuite. Many rooms also have a kitchenette area and small patio. These are just a few of the services MACS provides at the Geelong houses.

Supported Care

Bella Chara, our 60-bed supported residential facility in located in north Geelong and opened in July 2009. It provides high standard apartment-style accommodation and care in beautiful contemporary surroundings. These are the sorts of services we are proud to offer our residents.

Bella Chara is a welcoming yet intimate environment that offers individuals the sorts of comforts they could expect in a home care situation, but with the added benefits of a community where socialising is actively encouraged.
