MiCare was conceived some 10 years ago when DutchCare registered the name. The name MiCare captures the specialist service provision for people from non-English speaking countries i.e. migrants to Australia. Also it invokes a sense of belonging to one’s own community and the wider Australian community.

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare produced projections showing the number of people aged 65+ from a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) background living in Australia. The growth is expected to be enormous and by 2026, one in five older Australians will be from a non-English speaking country. In Victoria the figures are much greater. In 2006, 30% of Victorians aged 65+ were from a CALD background. That’s one in three!
 
The vision for MiCare is to become a national specialist service provider catering for the needs of people from a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) background and to all Australians. DutchCare has supplied culturally specific services to the Dutch community for more than 30 years and believes it is now able to transfer its skills to other ethnic communities and offer the same quality culturally appropriate aged care.
