At a show stopping event on June 22nd 2017, Multicultural Aged Care Inc officially unveiled their new brand to eager locals, clients, staff and health care stakeholders. The organisation is now known as ‘Multicultural Care’ to meet their objective to provide culturally-tailored care to everyone in the multicultural community, not just aged care recipients.
“As we are now a registered NDIS provider. This rebranding was crucial to ensuring local people with a disability felt we could meet their care needs,” said Multicultural Care CEO, Dr Rosy Walia.
“Becoming ‘Multicultural Care’ means we can continue to meet the aged care needs of multicultural communities in inner west, south west and south east Sydney, but also fill the gap being left by the lack of culturally-tailored disability care.”
Speakers at the rebrand launch event included Christine Regan, Senior Project Officer for the Rights Project for People with Disability, and Luis Moreno, NDIS Community Information and Promotion Officer from Multicultural Disability Advocacy Association of NSW Inc.
