… we’re with you
Advance Diversity Services (ADS) provides a range of aged care services to support your choice to live independently in your own home and stay connected with your community. Whether you need a few hours of domestic help each week or daily assistance, we shape our services to meet your requirements. Our bilingual staff are culturally sensitive – and guided by your goals and preferences.
We work closely with you and your family to help you understand your choices and to make the best use of the government funding support that’s available.
Respect and understanding
We tailor flexible services to support your wellbeing and are guided by your individual needs, choices and preferences.
Culturally appropriate care
We specialise in providing aged care to older people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds and will assist you to maintain your valued traditions
Speaking your language
Our experienced staff speak many languages, which can help you easily access services and make a smoother transition to feeling comfortable with their care.
Need support at home?
If you’d appreciate a little help at home, we can provide domestic assistance. If you need extra support, our Home Care Packages (HCP) are customised and can include package management, assistance with personal care, domestic tasks, transport, nursing and allied health care, social support and 24-hours on-call service.
Want to socialise more?
We’ll visit you at home, contact you by phone, help you with shopping, or medical appointments and to attend recreational activities
Bi-weekly bus outings
Enjoy a day out sightseeing in the city and surrounds!
Social support groups
If you don’t require transport; join one of our language-specific groups
Centre-based seniors day program
Enjoy culturally appropriate meals, transport, and a range of social activities. Current language groups include Arabic, Cantonese, Greek, Italian, Macedonian, Maltese, Mandarin and Spanish. We also coordinate a Muslim-Women specific group
In-home flexible respite care
This service gives carers a break from their caring role while we care for their loved one.
Packages for your care
We receive Government funds to provide care services to older people in South-Eastern Sydney through two programs:
Suitable for people with basic care needs who live a fairly active life and need only occasional help. We offer help with housework, shopping, respite, centre based day care, attending a social activity or transport and individual social support.
Suitable for people who are less active and have medium- to high-level care needs but want to remain living at home. Tailored packages can include personal care, housework, nursing care, transport, shopping, individual support, respite etc. We provide all four levels of care under the HCP
Services are subsidised by the Australian Government Department of Health. But consumers may be asked to contribute towards the cost of their services.
‘Live independently in your own home for as long as you choose with support from ADS.’
Are you eligible?
You may be eligible for government funding if you are an older person (usually 65+ or 50+ for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) finding it harder to do the things you used to do. You will need to have a face-to-face assessment of your care needs through My Aged Care to find out if you are eligible.
We can assist you to navigate the aged care system. Call our Intake Officers on (02) 9136 4788, and speak to our bilingual staff about your needs (TIS Interpreting Service is available if we don’t speak your language). For more information drop into our Rockdale office or contact My Aged Care.
