Multicultural Aged Care Illawarra was founded (as The Illawarra Multicultural Village Group) over 25 years ago to provide care and support for older people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, with the village currently providing care and services for 91 residents from over 23 countries.
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.
The village has been operating on a not-for-profit basis now for over 25 years and enjoys a good relationship with many local communities and health professionals.
