Italian Village Community Support Program


These programs offer significant benefits to the ageing Italian who lack access to culturally and linguistically appropriate supports and care in their own region. The Italian Benevolent Foundation works in collaboration with a range of smaller Italian groups and mainstream aged care service providers.

Respite is flexible and offered individually or in a group setting. Carers are given a full day to spend as they wish whilst the person they care for is in a secure, supportive and enjoyable environment.

The Passa Tempo Program is active in building & developing relationships with mainstream service providers and the smaller Italian Community groups to work in collaboration to achieve culturally appropriate service frameworks / models by sharing resources, cultural knowledge, expertise and access for clients and their carers to a range of services.

The program aims to:

  • Provide a therapeutic day care program
  • Provide respite to the carer
  • Provide preventative health programs – falls prevention, foot health and nutrition advice.

Reviewing an aged care provider is a great way to share your thoughts. But please follow the policies listed below when writing a review.

We will remove content that violates any of the policies listed below:

  • Off-topic reviews: Do not post reviews based on a third party experience, they must be your own. Our reviews are not a forum for general political or social commentary or personal rants.
  • Impersonation: Do not post reviews on behalf of other people or misrepresent your identity or connection with the aged care provider you are reviewing.
  • Language: Do not use offensive, profane, or obscene language. We will remove reviews that represent personal attacks.
