Madina Village Community Services Ltd (MVCS) believes it is every individual’s responsibility to look after any aging parents and relatives with disability, and we will always promote hands-on care by family members as the best option. However, recognising that family care is not always possible, or on its own may not always lead to maximum outcomes, Madina feels it’s their duty and privilege to offer home care services as the next best alternative. The Muslim community in Perth has grown to well beyond 35,000 people, leading active lives and contributing to Western Australian society.
