Our Mission / Objective

We aspire to ensure that individuals from culturally diverse backgrounds have access to appropriate aged care services and information to help them enjoy an optimal quality of life and stay independent.

Our Services

Multicultural Aged Care Inc. (MAC) is a non-government, not for profit, secular community based organisation funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services to provide homecare services to frail older people and their carers from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (CALD). MAC has grown to be one of the most trusted multicultural community aged care providers for over 2 decades. We provide personalized in home services to older people so they can continue to live independently and safely in their home through the following services:



HOME CARE PACKAGES (HCPS):


Home Care Packages provide four flexible support levels depending on each person’s needs:
Levels 1 and 2 packages to help with basic needs.



Levels 3 & 4 packages to help with intermediate to high care needs.


Tailored packages assist with tasks such as:



Personal care - showering and dressing.

Light house duties- house cleaning, washing dishes, and laundry.

Transport for shopping and other appointments.

Meal preparation and medications reminders.

Any other services depending on specific care needs.

All our packages are government funded and are delivered on a consumer directed care basis (“CDC”) which allows choice in the care and service need including the preferred providers. Top up services which are additional services not covered under the government allocated budget can be delivered on full cost recovery basis or privately.
The program targets people from any CALD background living in the Inner West Area (7 LGAs) and in the Bankstown LGA



CENTRE BASED RESPITE:

Centre Based Respite allows older people to attend day care while allowing carers to have some respite time. This service is offered to frail older people from five languages who lives in Canterbury LGA only.

What does Centre Based Respite provide?


Enjoyable companionship, entertainment and recreation
Social engagement with people from similar backgrounds, age and interests.

Outings and visits to places of interest.

Guest speakers with interpreters to discuss relevant topics.
Stimulating physical and cultural activities.
