Australian Vietnamese Women’s Association Inc – HCP Northern
DescriptionThe Australian Vietnamese Women's Association (AVWA) which celebrated its 30th anniversary in March 2013 is a caring multiservice not for profit organisation with a well-deserved reputation for consistently high standards of service.
In Victoria, AVWA is the one and only organisation that has not only care workers fluent in Vietnamese (and in some instances, Chinese), but also case managers, coordinators, operations manager and chief executive officer who are also Vietnamese. Therefore, our Vietnamese and other Asian background consumers can be assured that the services we deliver are culturally and linguistically sensitive and appropriate.
The aims of the AVWA Home Care Packages Program are:
• to assist senior people from Vietnamese background to remain living at home for as long as possible; and
• to enable them to have choice and flexibility in the way that culturally and linguistically appropriate care and support is provided at home.
