I became, in my own mind, part of this family. And they've looked after me with all my needs and it's made me very happy.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, older people can sometimes be left without a carer. In those times, it's important that they have somewhere they can go where they will receive high quality care and support.
At MACG, we provide tailored respite care services. If you, or someone you love, needs emergency respite care, contact our friendly care team. We'll be able to get you, or someone you love, the support you need quickly.
We're happy to answer any questions you may have.
Many older people need around-the-clock care and support to live independently. That's why we offer urgent respite care for families that need some extra assistance. Our services include quick admission and comfortable rooms for residents to access when it's needed most.
Our ethos, 'home is where the heart is', is the foundation of each and every one of our 8 homes across Melbourne. We provide smaller homes, so our care team can provide high quality support, and our residents can live comfortably.

A community environment with fewer beds

Father’s Day 2020 was recognised and celebrated in many special ways across the MACG homes.
When urgent respite care is needed, it can be challenging to adjust to a rapid change in environment. Our homes have been purposely created to feel like a home away from home. Whether emergency respite care is needed for a week or a month, our homes are comfortable and inviting.
Even if you're only staying in our homes for a short time, you'll still feel a part of the family. Our lifestyle programs bring our residents together, to enjoy mutual interests and activities suited to their needs.
All of our 8 homes in Melbourne maintain a connection with the local community. Our residents and care teams have created volunteer programs and initiatives close to their hearts, and volunteer for charities of their choice. If you stay long enough, even if you're only with us for respite care, you might get a chance to volunteer, too.
We have 8 homes across Melbourne and regional Victoria. So, no matter where you are, if you need urgent respite care services, you can find an MACG home located conveniently nearby.
That depends on which home you are attending, and what type of room you'd like to secure. At MACG, we keep our costs low because we believe everyone deserves access to support and care. For more information, contact our friendly team and we'd be happy to walk you through the costs of our services.
While we provide rooms and bedding, we recommend bringing a few items with you, even for a short stay. Try to remember to bring the following with you:
We also ask that you label any clothes you bring so they don't get mixed up or lost.
We have registered nurses on-site. If you are very unwell, we'll ensure you get to hospital quickly and receive medical treatment. If you have a preference for how you'd like the situation to be handled should you fall sick, please let us know. This way, we can make sure you receive treatment your way.
