The MCCV has recently expanded their services to provide additional assistance to the Maltese Community members who are over 65 and reside in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne.
Centre Based Respite
Centre Based Respite operates on site at the MCCV Sunshine centre and is designed for people who have a carer who may need to complete chores, go to appointments or attend to other things in their lives. The MCCV offers a welcoming environment with qualified staff who can assist you with your personal needs.
There are many fun activities planned so that everyone can join in. Whether it be sitting and having a chat over a cup of tea, playing cards, learning to use an iPad, gentle exercise, arts and crafts and even Zumba dancing.
We provide delicious morning tea and lunch and can also organise transport to and from our centre if you need it.
There is a fee involved with provision of these services and this depends on which service you require and how often these services are delivered. All fees will be discussed with you before you start our programs.
How to access services
If you wish to access any of our services, you will need to be referred via My Aged Care and have an assessment by the Regional Assessment Service by calling on 1800 200 422 or by going to myagedcare.gov.au
You can call My Aged Care or if you prefer, a referral can be made by your Doctor, someone who already provides a home care services to you, or a family member or carer.
When you contact My Aged Care, you can let them know that you wish to use Maltese Community Council of Victoria services.
