Our Aged Care Team provides care, support and assistance to the ageing community with a strong focus on culturally responsive and sensitive care for clients from a culturally and linguistically diverse background, and to all Australians over the age of 65 (or 55 for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people).
Our team provides support services through case management, service delivery, clinical and nursing services, and by providing education to older people. We aim to keep individuals connected to their communities and to assist them to participate in activities that are important to them, by promoting and facilitating independence and physical support where needed.
Mosaic Aged Care Programs provide through the following programs:
- Home Care Packages (HCP)
- Flexible Respite through the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)
- Individual Social support through the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)
- Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme (ACVVS)
Our Home Care Package program
Home Care Packages provide personal services in the comfort of your own home. We can help you stay living in your home so you can continue doing the things you want to do. With the right services and support, we can help you remain as independent as possible.
We can help you with care and support services such as personal care, showering and grooming, continence management, cleaning and household tasks, grocery shopping, washing and ironing, social support, transport to appointments and social events and in-home respite.
Through our nursing care and specialised support services, we can arrange for a Registered Nurse to visit you in your home to provide clinical care. This can help you monitor your blood pressure, manage your diabetes, manage your medication, and dress and care for any wounds. We can also arrange visits by occupational therapists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists and podiatrists.
Aged Care Volunteer Visitors Scheme (ACVVS)
For those who are receiving a home care package or a resident in an aged care facility, the ACVVS program matches volunteers to a client so that they can spend quality social time together and develop companionship, friendship and shared interest.
For additional information contact our friendly ACVVS coordinator on 02 4969 3399

- are over 65 and need coordinated services to help you to stay in your home (or over 55 if you identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander), or

- come from a culturally and linguistically diverse background.
