A not-for-profit organisation, Multicultural Aged Care Illawarra was founded (as The Illawarra Multicultural Village Group) in 1989 ago to provide care and support for older people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, with the village currently providing care and services for 91 residents from over 23 countries within their residential aged care facility and permanent accommodation for older people within their eight independent living units.
Multicultural Aged Care Illawarra is fortunate to have a diverse range of board members, staff and volunteers, many of whom can speak many different languages fluently.
The village provides many services aside from residential accommodation, providing residents with nursing care, cleaning, meals, maintenance and a range of program activities to suit their needs and interests.
Visiting health professionals also provide medical, chiropractic and physiotherapy services within the village, allowing residents to receive ongoing medical and health care within their residential surroundings.
Announced in October 2022, local aged care provider Warrigal progressed alongside MACI with a merger to ensure the MACI Warrawong care home and village remained operational, and will fully become a subsidiary of Warrigal as of April 1, 2023.
