Did you know we can organise transport to take you shopping or to the doctors, put in access ramps and even clean your house? All of these services help older people and people with disability live independent and healthy lives in our community.
Victorian councils are the largest public sector provider of in-home care services including home care, personal care, respite care, property maintenance, delivered meals, assessment and care management.
Joe Agresta has been working as Home Maintenance Leading Hand at Council for a very long time.
“I went to one elderly lady, yesterday. I did a few little jobs for her. She was elated and said, ‘I wish I had of known this existed.’ Well, we’ve been going and I’ve been here 30 years,” Mr Agresta laughed.
Why choose Moonee Valley? There are so many reasons but first is community. There is also the outstanding quality and skilled workers.
Mr Agresta and his two colleagues are proud of the work they do around Moonee Valley.
“We make our own bannister rails. We bend our own, get our own steel, and we weld our own banister rails. Plus we do tap washers, put handheld showers in, put handrails in, smoke alarms, light globes” and other minor jobs.
“We’re here to help the aged and people with disability basically. They call us out to help with anything really.”
We would like to hear your thoughts about our Aged and Disability Services – even if you have not accessed them yet.
