At the same time, Fronditha Care expanded its service provision beyond residential care to Community Services, providing home care assistance to the elderly. This division now services all of Greater Melbourne with qualified multi-lingual staff. The organisation also initiated the provision of Independent Living Units for elderly on low-income, and created Planned Activity Groups and respite care programs for the elderly and their carers, to counter the growing problem of isolation.
Furthermore, Fronditha Care focused on the provision of information to our elderly to enable them to access and obtain appropriate aged care services, despite the cultural and linguistic barriers that they faced.
The Greek community has always been by Fronditha Care’s side and without its assistance the organisation’s journey would have been a very different one. The community not only came to trust in Fronditha Care, but has played a large role in strengthening the organisation through donations, sponsorships, partnerships and advocacy.
