North Geelong Victoria, 3215


Multicultural Aged Care Services Geelong Inc. (MACS) provides quality care and support for Geelong and western metropolitan’s frail elderly community. We have been doing so since 1994.

Moving into residential aged care can be a daunting and stressful time for an older person and their loved ones. At MACS, we encourage our consumers to see a move to residential care as another stage of their journey and hopefully to gain some of their independence back, rather than losing it.

Our residential facilities cater for all levels of care, from independent living units through to dementia specific care. We provide tools and resources that empower our consumers to have choices and live as independently as possible, while surrounded by a friendly, welcoming and supportive community. Our residential aged care offerings are:

Borrela House, Mary Costa House, Annie O’Malley House – providing a total of 84 permanent beds, with two respite beds in Annie O’Malley House. Home care consumers can also take advantage of MACS’ respite service, allowing carers up to eight weeks of planned respite during the year. All rooms are single occupancy and residents have a choice of a private or shared ensuite. Many rooms also have a kitchenette and small patio area.

Gerda’s House – a modern dementia-specific house that opened in April 2016 and provides 14 beds for consumers with dementia, who require more secure accommodation and attention to special needs. We aim to maximize autonomy, and encourage independence and participation in everyday life. Each room has a kitchenette and private ensuite with large windows overlooking the landscaped gardens.

Each house offers an exciting social and active lifestyle program. As well as fun activities such as movie afternoons, craft, gardening and cards, in-house music concerts, consumers are encouraged to participate in organised activities that look after the body, care for the mind and nurture the spirit. There is also a walking track, a playground for children, bird aviaries and a green-house to visit and explore.

MACS Geelong has an on-site multi-faith chapel, beautiful gardens and communal living areas and a piazza where consumers, their families and friends can go to mingle, sip coffee, enjoy alfresco dining, shop and have their hair cut.

Residential care is Commonwealth subsidised (based on an income assessment) and places are available to those declared eligible by the Commonwealth Aged Care Assessment Service.

Growing a Greater Sense of Life Through Music

on Tuesday, April 25, 2017

There are many robust conversations on the power of music for seniors. In recent years, this topic has escalated as we sharpen our focus on health, well-being and re-enablement for older persons. It has flowed past the idea that music is a heavenly pursuit, a stimulant or relaxant. Or a diversion. We now talk about the intentional use of music to heighten therapeutic, emotional and spiritual status in an older individual.
