MACS’ good times bloom

Enjoying coffee in Stella's Cafe at MACS' Bella Chara.

Award-winning aged care provider MACS Geelong is throwing open its doors for Spring Open Day.

All are welcome to come and experience the services on offer at MACS.

The event, from midday to 3pm on 22 September, will give insight to anyone curious about what life would be like at MACS.

Visitors can take a tour, sample international foods, listen to live music by The Stiletto Sisters, trial the MACS walking track, peruse the boutique and craft stall and enjoy a barista-made coffee from the café.

MACS CEO Joy Leggo looks forward to meeting new people interested in learning more about MACS.

“It can be a big step for anyone thinking about moving into supported living of any kind,” Ms Leggo says.

“We’re here to help in any way we can.

“A big thing for us is to assure people that moving into supported living does not signal a loss of independence, freedom or fun. We help to make things easier for people so they can focus on their hobbies and social lives.”

The Bella Chara-supported care facility provides apartment style self-contained, private units a stone’s throw from all the services one might need.

Cooking, cleaning and laundry is taken care of and residents spend their days taking part in fun activities and planned outings.

Bella Chara also offers beautiful respite rooms with private en-suites and balconies and round the clock care is provided by professional staff. Bella Chara respite residents have access to all MACS activities including bus trips and access to all MACS facilities, including the piazza, chapel and café.

“Our shared dining room means meals are a time to gather as a community. It’s so lovely to see strong friendships blossom and new life breathed into our residents as they rediscover their love of art or singing or whatever it is that makes them tick,” Ms Leggo says.

“We really do value each individual and look forward to meeting you at the Spring Open Day so you can see if MACS feels like the right fit for you.”

MACS is at 100 Weddell Road, North Geelong.
