Stefania and Ohannes' Story

Stefania and Ohannes found the process for organising home care particularly complicated, especially as English was their second language. This confusion led to them having to wait an extra 18 months for their home care packages.


Michelle's Story

63-year-old local, Michelle, relates the process of getting support at home to being thrown into a cyclone. Thanks to some great guidance from a dear friend, Michelle picked up the phone to CatholicCare Sydney. She says it was the best decision she ever made.
