Our philosophy

The team at Adssi HomeLiving Australia is passionate about making a difference in people’s lives.

We can help you if you are frail aged, living with dementia or a disability, or if you care for someone who is. We offer a wide range of practical HomeLiving services that promote choice, lifestyle and independence. We understand the best option for accommodation is often to stay in your own home, with the familiarity of your neighbourhood, friends and family.

Adssi HomeLiving Australia provide advice, support and modifications if necessary, to make staying in your home easier and safer. You may be eligible for government assisted services – to find out more, please call the Community Care Access Point on 1300 731 556.

Our structure

[spoiler]ADSSI Limited trading as Adssi HomeLiving Australia is a not for profit company limited by guarantee. We commenced operating as Wyong Shire Aged and Disability Support Services Inc. in 1987 offering two funded services – Home Modifications and Maintenance and Community Options – and we still offer these services today.

Since then we have grown into a multi service community business that remains committed to making a difference in the lives of people in our community. We provide services to a broad range of clients who may be eligible for subsidised services (according to government guidelines) or who may choose to pay market rates.

ADSSI Limited is a public benevolent institution with deductible gift recipient status. Donations are fully tax deductible.[/spoiler]

Our history

[spoiler]Adssi HomeLiving Australia commenced in 1987 as an incorporated association – Wyong Shire Aged and Disability Support Services Inc. thanks to successful lobbying by a group of local community minded people who were concerned about the lack of services to support frail aged and people living with a disability. In 1995 the organisation changed its name to Aged and Disability Support Services (Wyong Shire) Inc.

We started in the Old Bakery Building at Wyong and in 1991 moved to Tuggerah Lakes Community Centre. In 2008 we moved to the Tuggerah Business Park and in 2012 we bought the building at 3A Pioneer Avenue.

In recognition of our growing size, revenue and corporate governance responsibilities, Aged and Disability Support Services became ADSSI Limited, a company limited by guarantee in 2006.

From those first two projects – Community Options and Home Maintenance and Modifications – we have successfully gained government funding for a wide range of services including domestic assistance, linen, gardens and lawns, social support, several dementia specific projects, respite, ComPacks and Community Aged Care Packages. We are also pre-qualified for disability services and we are a Supported Living Fund provider.

We have successfully gained expansion funding every year in recognition of our ability to comply with funding requirements and to deliver quality services to our target groups.

In 2008 we purchased an occupational therapy business (formerly known as AMEot) that is now an integral part of Adssi HomeLiving Australia and our suite of services.[/spoiler]
