WHY CHOOSE VMCH?
As one of the largest providers in Victoria and Southern NSW, we have been supporting local communities for more than 20 years. We know that no two people are the same. Nothing is more important than recognising, respecting and responding to individual needs and preferences.
We also have culturally specific services (CALD) to support people who come from non-English speaking backgrounds.
HOW MUCH DOES A HOME CARE PACKAGE COST?
Eligibility for a Home Care Package is determined by the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS). This assessment is free and conducted in your home by experienced professionals. Government funding can greatly reduce your fees, however if personal circumstances allow, you may be asked to contribute to the cost of your care.
If you are eligible, you are expected to contribute to the cost of your care where your personal circumstances allow.

VMCH is accredited by the Quality Innovation Program and Australian Quality Aged Care Agency.
