Transforming Lives through Free Healthcare for the Homeless


At Moreton Group Medical Services, we are committed to providing free healthcare to people experiencing homelessness, and we have seen first-hand the transformative impact that our services can have on the lives of our clients. One such client, who had been disengaged from healthcare and socially isolated for over 8 years due to mental illness and substance misuse, was able to turn his life around with our support.


Our team met this client while doing outreach work at a sheltered accommodation site, where he was residing. We quickly recognised that he was exhibiting signs of schizophrenia, including auditory and visual hallucinations that were leading him to self-harm. We knew that immediate action was needed to get him the care he required.


After conducting a thorough assessment, we placed the client on medication and referred him to mental health services for ongoing support. Within a week of starting his treatment, we noticed a remarkable change in him. He was able to fully engage with our support workers, opening up about his struggles and expressing a desire to turn his life around.


Perhaps most remarkably, our intervention helped this client reconnect with his grandmother after a long separation of 8 years. She had been searching for him without success, and it was only through our outreach efforts that they were finally able to reconnect. This reunion provided the client with a powerful sense of support and a renewed sense of purpose.


Over time, the client continued to make strides in his recovery, and he was making progress in remaining sober. We were thrilled to see the positive impact that our services had on his life and are proud to continue to provide free healthcare to people experiencing homelessness in our community.


At Moreton Group Medical Services, we believe that everyone deserves access to quality healthcare, and we are committed to making this a reality for people who may otherwise be left behind. We will continue to work tirelessly to transform lives and build a more just and compassionate world, one patient at a time.
