People requiring aged and disability support in Hepburn Shire will receive home care from one of two providers from July 1, Benetas or mecwacare.
A Hepburn Shire Council media release said all clients would have an uninterrupted and seamless transition of care to their new provider.
Benetas is a leading not-for-profit aged care provider with a mission to provide older Victorians, their families, and carers with a full range of quality community-based services such as home care, and in-home nursing; respite services; residential care and retirement living communities across Melbourne and regional Victoria.
mecwacare, a not-for-profit, non-denominational charitable organisation provides residential, community and in-home nursing care and support services for more than 20,000 Victorians who are aged or living with disability.
The move follows the council’s decision to transition out of aged and disability services in March 2022.
Council’s CEO Bradley Thomas said the council and staff would continue to advocate for vulnerable residents.
“We will work closely with our Disability Advisory Committee and continue to support disability access and inclusion in the shire.”
Meanwhile, the council has developed a draft Positive Ageing Strategy, which is open for community feedback until June 15.
