About Us

VMCH Experience Charter

Guiding us to the highest quality care and support.

The VMCH Charter guides us to deliver the highest quality care and support to you, or your loved one.

 

At VMCH we support people from all walks of life, across our 50 local sites located in metropolitan and regional Victoria as well as Southern New South Wales.

We know many of you or your loved ones come to us in times of confusion, stress or with expectations of a brighter future. Our professional and compassionate teams understand this and are with you on your life journey.

This Charter guides us to deliver the highest quality care and support to you, or your loved one.

Living our Mission

Our Mission to continue the caring ministry of Jesus Christ, is central to who we are and what we offer. It comes to life through our everyday actions and in our work. We are called to really listen; we hear the needs of those we care for and we take time to discern what we can do to add meaning. This is how we support people to live their best lives.

You can find more about our Vision, Mission and Values and how they are integral to our work.

Our commitment to you

We aim to provide exceptional interactions and experiences that are consistently thoughtful, personal and easy, shaped around you or your loved one’s needs and wishes.

Our service standards

The services we provide are all about relationships and connections with others. Our Catholic values underpin our approach to relationships and are the basis of the services we deliver to you.

We are committed to providing services which:

  • Are based on a deep understanding of the whole person: your background, lifestyle, preferences, goals and wishes.
  • Include families, carers and guardians in all communication and decisions, where appropriate, and provide opportunities for family members to feel fully supported and part of the VMCH community.
  • Are outcomes focused (i.e., helping a person achieve their life goals), over and above the minimal required legislative service standards.
  • Care for you in a holistic way, including your physical, mental, social and spiritual wellbeing.
  • Enable you or your loved one to be as independent as possible; to have choices and a meaningful place in your community, with the respect and dignity you deserve.
  • Make improvements to technological capabilities where possible, so you have a more seamless and straightforward experience with us.
  • Communicate clearly with direct language, so that you always know what is happening, and why.
  • Provide the right training, work environment, resources and support so that our staff and volunteers are cared for and feel valued. So, in-turn, they can focus on delivering an exceptional experience and genuine care and empathy to you or your loved one.
  • Offer community centres and accommodation of the highest possible standards, with a constant focus on updating and maintaining our properties.
