Carer Support

To look after someone can be challenging at times and often the needs of the carer get neglected. Sydney MCS stresses the importance to give carers time for themselves to have a rest and refill their energy levels.  Choosing a Sydney MCS Care Worker allows the carer to focus on their health with the security that their loved one is taken care of by someone that not only lightens the load, but also speaks the client’s language. The different types of respite are:

  • At home: home respite can provide a few hours break on a regular basis. We also offer overnight respite services.
  • Centre based day care: respite is available in regular day care groups for aged ethnic community members. We provide a variety of activities for a wide cross-section of interests.

Social Support

Connecting with like-minded people has a profound impact on your physical, mental and emotional health. Here at Sydney MCS we not only get you involved in group activities, but allow you to spend time in an environment that is culturally and linguistically specific to you. Our social support services include:

  • Accompanied shopping, bill paying, banking
  • Transport to social activities such as your local club, your local markets and your church
  • Having a home visit from one of our CVS volunteers speaking your language and understanding your background
  • Joining one of our Day Care groups or English classes
