Multicultural Aged Care Services Geelong
Description : Opening in 1994, Multicultural Aged Care Services Geelong Inc. (MACS) is a community-based, non-profit organisation providing Commonwealth-funded residential and home based services for elders from the Geelong area’s many cultural groups. 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. A vibrant on-site and community leisure program is provided, and the on-site multi-faith chapel, gardens and communal living areas are available to residents. Care and accommodation are Commonwealth subsidised (based on income asset test) and available to individuals declared eligible by the Commonwealth Aged Care Assessment Service. Our philosophy of care is to value each resident as a person and to maximise their autonomy and encourage independence and participation in everyday life. Gerda’s House is a safe, secure, supportive and non-judgmental place where we allow people living with dementia “to be them” – whatever their culture, their story, or their lifestyle. 10 single rooms, each with their own kitchenette and large private ensuite have a large picture window overlooking our landscaped gardens.
Address : 100 Weddell Rd, North Geelong VIC 3215

Frequently Asked Questions

  • No, CareAbout is not affiliated with My Aged Care. CareAbout is an independent service helping older Australians to navigate their way through the often-confusing landscape of Aged Care in Australia.

  • Most people in Australia would prefer to stay in their own home than move into an Aged Care Home. The government supports both situations and is increasingly shifting funding to care at home.

  • We’re lucky that the government helps to fund the cost of aged care. Everyone over the age of 65 years is entitled to some help. And yes, everyone is expected to contribute to the cost of aged care.

  • If you choose to access government subsidies you need to start by calling My Aged Care. My Aged Care will walk you through the steps you need to take, starting with a face – to – face assessment of your loved one’s needs. My Aged Care will also guide you through the fees you will need to contribute to the costs of care. You can then choose how you want to spend the government subsidies – this may mean support to stay at home or moving into an Aged Care Home. There is a delay of up to 8 weeks to access government subsidies. If you need help earlier you can pay for care directly. If you need help now, CareAbout can talk you through the fees and services of our different partners so you can compare aged care value and service offerings.

  • Aged Care is complex and expensive. There seems to be endless fees and hoops to jump through. But there is help. Call CareAbout and we’ll explain aged care fees in words you’ll understand. We can even match you with one of our care partners – and this is absolutely free!
