“Now that I’m older, I need a little more care.”
With so many aged care options, it can sometimes get a little tricky deciding what option is best for you.
Maybe you just need a hand with the shopping or running errands. Or perhaps you require a higher level of care. Either way, we’re here to help.
We’re a trusted provider of age care services and are known for our high standards. We know everyone has different care needs and that’s why we tailor our services to the individual.
Our services include at-home age care, residential aged care and lifestyle and respite services.
With more than 7,000 people across Victoria having chosen us, we know a thing or two about giving you the best care possible.
When you need a little extra help at home, try home care.
As you get older, you might find you need more support day to day.
We can help you with Home Care Packages, Commonwealth Home Support Programme, or privately-funded services. These programs are designed to help you live at home and continue doing the things that make you happy.
We’re here to do whatever we can to support your needs including:
• Personal care (showering, dressing etc.)
• Domestic assistance and household tasks
• Home and garden maintenance
• Healthy eating and meal preparation
• Podiatry, physio, massage, and other therapies
• Social activities and transport
How do I get started?
Our knowledgeable staff will happily walk you through the process, your options and let you know if you’re eligible for government funding. If you’d like more information about our at-home aged care services, you can call us on 1300 698 624
When you require a higher level of care, it’s time for aged care
If your health has taken a turn or your home Care Package isn’t quite giving you all the support you need, it might be time to consider residential aged care.
We have 11 residence across Victoria, which offer extensive care delivered by experienced, qualified and nurturing professionals.
Our Care Practice
The VMCH Care Practice is designed to support you to live the life you choose. We’re all about independence, engagement and collaboration. We tailor our care to the individual, so if you need a more hands-on approach or a higher level of care, that’s what we deliver.
Our lifestyle programs
We believe how you choose to spend your day is your choice. Join in our fun and stimulating activities, take a moment to reflect during regular Mass services or sit back and relax as you enjoy our regular visiting entertainers.
Take a tour of our aged care residences to see their unique and friendly communities first-hand.

Lifestyle and respite when you need a break
Our respite programs are designed to give carers valuable time out while you are supported in a nurturing and safe environment.
We have day and overnight respite houses located in Pakenham, Wantirna, Lysterfield and Kialla Lakes.
Respite can also be accessed within your own home or at our aged care residences.
Care tailored to you
Lifestyle and respite services are designed to help improve your quality of life while building on your likes, strengths and goals.
While each respite offers something a little bit different, they all focus on you. Activities are as diverse as the people who come to us, and they are designed to reflect your interests and changing needs.
Get involved and have fun
We’ve got group outings, art and crafts, cultural days, men’s sheds, conversation groups and guest speakers.
However you like to spend your day, our skilled staff deliver the best care all day, every day.
