Churches of Christ Care Barcoo Living Multi Purpose Service Blackall is a multi-purpose facility providing services ranging from high and low level care to respite care, as well as home-based care. The Barcoo Living Multi Purpose Service is an innovative new model of service delivery which is the first service in Australia to operate under a tripartite agreement between Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing, State Health Department and a non-government organisation, Care.
The Barcoo Living Multi Purpose Service (MPS) is a joint Commonwealth and State/Territory initiative for rural and remote communities offering high and low care positions to eligible seniors. It allows the local community and service providers to work together under one management structure to plan and improve health and aged care services. This gives small communities having difficulty supporting a range of independently run services the opportunity to develop a more coordinated and cost effective approach to service delivery.
