The Australian Multicultural Community Services (AMCS) is a community organisation with more than 30 years experience serving the multicultural community. We support seniors to live at home for as long as possible, helping them maintain their independence and connect to opportunities.
Our culturally appropriate services are:
– delivered by skilled, knowledgeable and caring staff.
– mostly free or low-cost
– available in Victoria, with Home Care Packages also available in other states starting from February 2017.
Home Care Packages and private home care
Whether you have a government-funded Home Care Package or are seeking private care, our flexible, personalised home care support helps you to stay living at home. Our home care services are culturally appropriate and delivered by caring and experienced multilingual workers.
Information, referral and support
We provide information and can help connect you to services you need. We also support ethnic senior citizens clubs.
Social support groups
Socialise with other seniors from your own culture at one of our activity groups for seniors.
Respite for carers
If you’re a carer for an older person and person with a disability, our respite services allow you to have a break.
Enjoy companionship and support from one of our multilingual volunteers, who will visit you in your own home or nursing home.
We provide support to people and families in financial difficulty.
Learn something new at one of our low-cost courses for people from diverse backgrounds. Our high-quality courses include beginner to advanced computer or iPad classes, English for daily living and English for employment.
