We encourage our residents to enjoy every day, to celebrate what they are capable of doing at their age, rather than worry about what they can no longer manage. Our staff work with the same residents all the time, so there are genuine relationships, often developed over years. At MiCare, we feel strongly that our Elders should feel at home where they live. This is a place of calling each other by first names, telling stories, of encouraging pets, plants, children, and family to be part of the environment. Many of our staff members are multi-lingual, to communicate with our many migrant Elders. They don’t wear uniforms, they wear everyday clothes, and none of this is accidental. We don’t want the Elders to feel like they’re being nursed. We want them to feel like they’re living their lives, in a shared, rich place with cultural recognition and with as much freedom and expression as possible.
Of course, we never lose sight of the care required as our resident’s age and their bodies or minds begin to fail. Our homes provide both low and high care accommodation, and ‘aging in place. Respite, dementia, and palliative care are all offered but not in a way that removes our Elders from their familiar surroundings. Instead, we adjust the level of care, according to the resident’s needs, while retaining the physical familiarity and emotional support of their MiCare home.

Our homes provide care and accommodation for dementia and palliative care. Overbeek Lodge is just down the road from Margriet Manor, on Mt Dandenong Road, Kilsyth. The two residential homes are similar in services, space, and ambience, with the main attribute, always being genuine care. We value companionship, laughter, and compassion when it comes to looking after our resident Elders.
Our homes provide care and accommodation, for dementia, and palliative care. Near the base of the Dandenong ranges, filled with light and air, and surrounded by the Australian bush, Margriet Manor sits on Mt Dandenong Road, Kilsyth.
