Overbeek Lodge is just down the road from Margriet Manor, on Mt Dandenong Road, Kilsyth. The two residential homes are similar in services, space and flavour, with the main attribute always being genuine care, companionship, laughter and compassion when it comes to looking after the residents. As always, the MiCare motto is to concentrate on what our residents can do, rather than what they can’t, so Micare encourage everybody to get the most out of their days. Unless they feel like sleeping in, of course.

Micare Overbeek Lodge 1

Overbeek Lodge has 53 individual rooms, all with their own ensuite bathroom, and also features two respite rooms for when residents need extra care. Sunny courtyards provide a peaceful oasis for residents wishing to enjoy the weather, to socialise or to find a quiet reading corner while the large lounge rooms offer good coffee, chatty staff and friendship. Each home is divided into smaller households of about 15 residents, with dedicated staff for each group, so that relationships are maintained, known faces are on hand and the staff have an ongoing, experienced eye for how each Elder is travelling, physically, mentally and emotionally. If a registered nurse is required, there is one on site, ready to help.

As well as featuring comfortable chairs, the living areas also have large tables so that residents can share their meals, and conversation, while all of these things can be pushed back to give performance groups room to move, such as our regular clog dancing troupe.

Many of the residents enjoy their food and we cater to that, with the best and most diverse offering which can be provided. The home-style meals follow the dietary guidelines as set by the Commonwealth Government and are regularly reviewed by a dietician, along with the home’s manager and the manager of food services. Rotating menus change every four weeks and are seasonally adjusted so that the residents never get bored with their options. Micare also actively involve residents in menu planning, taking into consideration their likes, dislikes and preferences, and especially by adding culturally specific meals to the mix where possible, to remind residents of their home country. Special dietary needs can be accommodated.

Micare Overbeek Lodge 5

Micare believe that the residents should be provided with plenty of entertainment options. The Lifestyle Team organises group activities, sometimes with a Dutch flavour, but also, increasingly, with tastes of other cultures to accommodate the many residents who are not from a Dutch background. National holidays such as Sinterklaas are celebrated in the traditional way and there is a weekly Happy Hour, where the real treat is an ‘advocaatje met slagroom’. Residents may choose to join the ‘Men’s Workshop’ or ‘Ladies’ Craft Club’. To enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Dandenong Ranges, Scenic drives and other excursions are organised.

MPIR increased to 8.36%

From 1st July 2024, the Maximum Permissible Interest Rate (MPIR) has increased to 8.36%

This small increase is due to the RBA's decision to maintain the benchmark rate for the past few months.

Some economists predict a benchmark rate cut before Christmas 2024, suggesting that the MPIR has peaked and may start to reduce.

Aged Care Star Rating System


Where can I find the Star Ratings?

From , the Government has started to use the STAR RATING system for registered aged care homes (new homes will be allocated a Star Rating after 12 months of operation).

Star Ratings are displayed on the Aged Care Provider Search within the My Aged Care website.

The Star Rating is based upon 5 levels with the middle rating denoting only a minimum baseline of ‘Acceptable’ care quality and services.


Continuous Improvement

The Star Rating System has revealed that 41 % of aged care homes are performing at a 5-star (excellent) or 4-star (good) level.

Star Ratings also reveal that astonishingly 5 % are performing below the minimum standards set, receiving a dismal and disturbing (Improvement Needed) or (Significant Improvement Needed) Star Rating.


Star Rating Support

We support full public disclosure of those aged care homes that are making the effort to exceed the regulated standards and community expectations.

We also support the naming of aged care homes that do not currently provide quality levels of aged care services to the frail elderly and vulnerable members of our community.

The Star Rating system is a key component of the aim for continuous improvement to our aged care system.
