Engaging respectfully with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients video
mecwacare and the South East Melbourne Aboriginal Engagement Project team have developed resources to support and educate community care staff to engage respectfully with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients in a home setting.
mecwacare is a major provider of residential, nursing and support services for the frail aged, disadvantaged and people with special needs and disabilities. We operate through a highly-integrated service network of over 1,500 employees and 350 volunteers, caring for over 11,000 people each year across greater Melbourne and regional Victoria.
mecwacare's primary objective is to enhance the quality of life of people in need of care, especially the elderly, through the delivery of innovative, responsive and fully-evaluated services offered in residential settings, community facilities and clients' homes. mecwacare acknowledges the Traditional Custodians and their Elders in each of the Communities in which we work.
