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. Our services are also available to anglo-saxons.
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.
Bella Chara, our 60-bed supported residential facility opened in July 2009 and provides high standard apartment-style accommodation and care in beautiful contemporary surroundings.
Bella Chara is a welcoming yet intimate environment that offers individuals.
