Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)
The Multicultural Wellness Program supports and cares for people from culturally diverse backgrounds, who are frail aged or have a disability, to enable them to continue to live independently through the provision of Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) funded services.
Our multilingual, multicultural staff are from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds and speak over 20 languages. This allows for services to be delivered in the preferred language of the consumer. If we do not have an employee who speaks the preferred language of the consumer we can arrange for a professional interpreter.
We provide Day Centre based services to people from multicultural backgrounds, who are frail or have a disability. The services are based on the Wellness Approach which focuses on capacity building and sustaining independence. Language specific day centre programs operate at several locations including Morley, Manning, Belmont, Wattle Grove and Westminster.
At the Day Centre you can meet people from similar cultural and language backgrounds, join in activities, games, outings and physical exercises and enjoy a fresh cooked meal and refreshments. Freshly cooked, culturally appropriate meals including lunch, morning and afternoon tea suitable to the needs of elderly are provided.
Transport can be provided to and from the Centre subject to availability.
Social Support provides you with the opportunity to take part in community activities and outings to places of interest include weekend retreats and group outings.
