Aged Care can be tough on everyone.

We're not going to sugarcoat it.

We specialise in providing a gentle transition to aged care, for when your mum or dad can’t live by themselves at home any longer.

A transition process is required, to care for your emotions, your expectations and to get excited about what’s available with VMCH.

But first, let’s bust some of the myths about residential aged care.

Myth: Moving to aged care can be difficult.

With VMCH: While that may be the case for some, VMCH has been around for over 100 years because our locations are bright, spacious, friendly and safe.

Our team provides compassionate and personalised care. We focus on fun events, games that challenge, people that motivate and friends that care.


Myth: Aged care residences are where people go to die.

With VMCH: Again, we are not going to sugar coat it. Most people that go into aged care need a high level of care.

However, that doesn’t mean an unrewarding and unenjoyable experience in residential aged care. With VMCH, every resident gains incredible support, the right care and access to a range of activities that ensure the best approach to life possible.

Myth: People in residential aged care spend most of their time sitting alone in their room.

With VMCH: This is a horrible thought, especially when we know it’s true for some residences in Australia. However, this isn’t the VMCH way.

Our residents have full days, whether it’s participating in our lifestyle activities, going for a walk, or enjoying our communal spaces. We make sure our residents are always engaged and active, while always respecting their need for quiet time.


Myth: The food and activities are terrible.

With VMCH: We know every activity on offer might not be everyone’s cup of tea – that’s why our lifestyle team get to know each of our residents and develop tailored activities.

Bingo, exercise classes, games, knitting group and more. We encourage our residents to get out there, try new things and do the things they love.

Oh, and our food? We use fresh and wholesome ingredients, prepared and cooked by our on-site chefs.

Let’s make this as simple and enjoyable as possible for you and your loved one.

Sometimes the hardest step is picking up the phone. We understand. VMCH is here to guide you through the paperwork, funding options and answer any question you have along the way.
