From mid-November Multicultural Care will further expand into the aged care market and now offer Veterans’ Home Care (VHC) services reflecting its objective of inclusiveness and ensuring that care is provided to everyone. “It is wonderful to be able to extend our culturally and linguistically appropriate services to Veterans, something our organisation has been wanting to do for some time” said Dr Rosy Walia CEO Multicultural Care.
With the successful submission of a tender, Multicultural Care has been selected by the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide its services to Entitled Persons. “I am delighted that we have been successful in becoming a preferred provider and proud to provide our Veterans with Home Care Services” said Dr Walia.
For those who have served our country in the military or are a widow or widower of a veteran there are a range of services to help support them to remain living independently. These services are designed to assist those with low level care needs by enabling them to remain in their own home independently for as long as possible.
“By providing client centred care we empower individuals from a range of backgrounds to enjoy an optimal quality of life and stay independent.” stated Dr Walia.
With an initial agreement for two years, Multicultural Care will provide Domestic Assistance, Personal Care, Social assistance and Respite Care services to Entitled Persons across Sydney ranging from Central Sydney, Inner West, Northern Sydney, South East & South Western Sydney.
Multicultural Care as an organisation prides itself on understanding the needs of the CALD communities, and culturally tailoring care through matching carers with clients based on their needs. Dr Walia said over 98% of staff speak another language and collectively can communicate in more than 25 languages. “Our organisation is committed to provide the best quality of care- our dedicated team inclusive of Veteran Home Care Coordinators, Roster coordinators and Bilingual Support Staff enable us to do so.”
Multicultural Care is a not for profit organisation providing in-home care services for the elderly and people with disability. More information and contact details can be found at www.multiculturalcare.com.au.
