We believe it is important that we can share language, understanding, experience and memories with friends of similar background. With this aim, we provide a range of services in both a community and residential aged care to the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities in Victoria.
Our Homes provide care and accommodation, as well as respite, dementia and palliative care. Should your care needs change; you will be able to stay in the area that has grown familiar to you whilst we adjust the level of care according to your needs.
Overbeek Lodge is situated in the green surroundings of the Dandenong Ranges. Sunny courtyards create a peaceful environment for Elders to take a stroll or just enjoy the weather.
Each Home is divided into smaller households of around 15 Elders. Each share a spacious living area with comfortable chairs and a big table for residents to enjoy their meal together.
Eden Alternative: MiCare is committed to the Eden Alternative™ creating a vibrant community where children, pets and plants are part of daily life. Families and our community are encouraged to take an active role. The Eden Alternative™ helps remind us that loneliness, helplessness and boredom can happen to any of us, these are more prevalent as we age as we are less able to leave our homes to go out into the community. The Eden AlternativeTM improves the wellbeing of Elders and those who care for them by transforming the communities in which they live and work. It focuses on relationships and empowering Elders to making their own decisions
Community Services: To older CALD persons living independently in their own home, we provide services throughout many parts of Melbourne and rural Victoria including Friendly Visiting, Planned Activity Groups, Community Visitors, Emergency Telephone Monitoring, Community Aged Care Packages, Telelink Services and Over 50’s Clubs.
Retirement Living: three villages located at Montrose, Kilsyth and Carrum Downs. We also have modern, luxury apartments in Kilsyth.
