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.
At MACG, we provide homes built on family values. We're passionate about creating communities in our homes, while providing high quality care from an experienced and qualified team.
When you stay at one of our homes, even if it's just for the weekend, you'll enjoy all the benefits of a warm and like-minded community, while receiving clinical support.
We're happy to answer any questions you may have about weekend respite care services.
If you need care while your primary carer takes a short break for the weekend, MACG is the ideal solution. We have 8 homes across Victoria, each with its own community filled with diverse residents.
When you stay with us, it'll feel like your own holiday. You'll have access to hotel-style services, a new community of people, and lifestyle programs.

We've worked hard to make sure our residents feel comfortable and secure in the homes we've built — including those who only stay for the short term. Whether you're with us for a weekend or a week, we encourage residents to bring belongings from home if they want, and make their room their own.
We've created diverse lifestyle programs for each of our homes. Whether you want to spend time in nature with a group of like-minded individuals, or enjoy a movie night in your room, we have something on for everyone.
If you don't already, you will enjoy the chance to volunteer and fundraise for both local and national charities. Many of our residents have chosen charities close to their hearts, and enjoy making arts and crafts to sell at fundraisers. When you enjoy weekend respite care at our homes, you'll have the opportunity to:
Our homes are located in 8 different suburbs across Victoria, so you won't have to travel far from your won home to stay with us for the weekend.
When you stay with us for the weekend, you'll want to pack daily necessities such as:
Plus any devices you use often, and chargers for these devices.
It has happened before. Sometimes, a resident's carer is unable to resume duties once the weekend is over. In these cases, we work with our residents to find the best alternate solution — whether that involves staying longer in our homes, or accessing our day respite program instead. But we'll never leave you without care.
You can stay connected with us and any friends you made during your stay by accessing our day respite services. Get in touch with our team to find out if your eligible, and how day respite works.
