Fronditha Care

Fronditha Care is a charitable not-for-profit community organisation that provides ethno-specific residential and community aged care services to the elderly.

With a rich tradition of love and care, Fronditha Care has been providing aged care services for elders and their families in Australia since 1977. Our Bounty of Care ethos drives us to go beyond physical and health needs to embrace a culturally rich environment that inspires celebration, fosters belonging and enhances wellbeing.

With exceptional residential facilities and community services, we provide choices and tailored care plans to empower elders to live the way they want, and enjoy what they love.

Our Community Services division provides home care packages and programs that cater to the individual needs of the elderly to support their independence and encourage active ageing.

Fronditha Care provides Home Care Packages to clients in Metropolitan Melbourne and also operates five residential aged care homes in Victoria and New South Wales.
