Hilbre Home Support is a locally owned and operated business that started providing care in early 2017. The idea for Hilbre came from its owner Melissa who has always had a passion for seniors.

Melissa is an experienced Health Care professional who left her home town of Melbourne, Australia in 2013 to immigrate to Victoria. Her Australian career began at the age of 14, where she worked in a long-term care facility every day after school. From there, she graduated high school, then nursing school primarily working in long term care facilities for the bulk of her career.

Melissa states her passion for allowing seniors to remain at home began after seeing the direct effect of being placed at care facilities had on not only seniors, but also their family members. Although acknowledging that at times there is no other choice for either health or financial reasons, if she can somehow contribute to the industry and assist with keeping people in the comfort of their own homes, that is what she aspires to work towards.

In her four years living in Victoria, Melissa has made significant connections in the community, starting with her employment at Beacon Community Services followed by Private Care. She has also volunteered with local community groups, examined research on current trends and statistics regarding seniors and available care options, in efforts to assure the best quality of care.

Since its opening, Hilbre has taken the time to put together an experienced team of compassionate professionals that have the same outlook regarding quality client care. We are now thriving and taking on the task of improving the quality of life and care for seniors on the Island.


Praise

The Hilbre team have been assisting our parents for some time now , and we are so grateful for all the support they have provided. We are very impressed by the care and attention that Hilbre’s care-givers have consistently shown towards our parents. It is such a relief to know that we can always count on someone to help us, especially during more difficult times when our parents have had some urgent medical issues. The team at Hilbre is very professional and extremely personable.

Our sincerest thanks! – John

I have complex health challenges and have had Home support services for the past 7 years. It has been challenging getting the right balance of home support in my home whilst balancing my dignity in being able to remain in my home and not have to live in an institution.  I have recently started a contract with Hilbre Home Support Services as other agencies were not able to give me professional and kind-hearted support.  I am from a different culture and I have found with Hilbre they respect and give me the cultural safety, the emotional security guaranteed in the legislation created to support people such as myself. If I have concerns I am able to raise them immediately and my opinions are respected!

There is peace and calmness in my home.

Thank you Sincerely – Deb
