Respite and carer support

If you’re a carer it is important to take breaks, look after your own health needs, and maintain your social networks.

Our centre-based day care groups cater for people who speak Arabic, Cantonese and Mandarin, Greek, Italian, Maltese, Macedonian and Spanish, and for Coptic and Muslim women. Stay active and build friendships through gentle group exercise, art and craft, music, festival celebrations and theme days. We also provide nutritious, culturally appropriate low-cost meals, and have a fleet of buses to transport you to and from activities.

Our popular day trips take you to interesting places in greater Sydney and give you opportunities to make friends and socialise. Our friendly drivers pick you up from your predetermined meeting point and return you to this point at the end of your trip.

If you’re unable to travel to our Bexley centre (at 405 Bexley Road) we can provide individual social support for you at home. Carers from your language and cultural background will visit to provide one-on-one support, and help with simple tasks at home and assist you to enjoy social outings like going to the park, shopping and having coffee with friends.

Providing professional support for your loved one while you take a break to catch up with other responsibilities, meet with friends, take part in a social activity, or just to get some rest.

Supporting Cantonese- and Mandarin-speaking carers and families to share their thoughts, needs and concerns with like-minded people. Many carers and families enjoy coming to these groups because they can speak freely about what it is like to care for a loved one and also learn from each other.

Social Support

Isolated people can be more vulnerable to depression and illness and at greater risk of having accidents at home. We’ll help you to stay well and well connected through a range of services including centre-based day care, bus outings, and individual social support.

Information, support and referrals

Advance Diversity Services is a vital hub for information and support for older people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds living in South-Eastern Sydney.

‘ADS offers culturally appropriate care and we’ll help you to maintain your valued traditions.’

How much do CHSP services cost?

The Australian Government subsidises the cost of providing aged care services to people in their homes. However, people are also expected to contribute towards the cost of their care.

As a non-profit provider, we offer the best service at the lowest possible price. We’ll discuss costs at your initial consultation and prior to commencement of your services.
