Adssi HomeLiving Australia offers a wide range of practical HomeLiving services that promote choice, lifestyle and independence. For frail aged and people living with disability, this support can mean the difference between having to move into residential care versus continuing to live in their own home and community. In other words, we can support you to keep living the life you want to lead.
For busy people, it means more free time to do the things you like to do.
Our not for profit organisation has been providing support to people on the Central Coast for almost 30 years.
It’s your home – your life – and your way
Your home – whatever you need doing around your home we can help.
Your life – it’s up to you how you live your life. We will support you in your choices where we can.
Your way – we respect that you want to do things your way. We work with you – we don’t take over.

Our History - Click here to learn more
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 Home 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.

Strategic Plan - Click here to learn more
The Board, staff and volunteers of Adssi HomeLiving Australia are committed to making a difference in the lives of people in our community through the services that we provide. This passion is reflected in our Strategic Plan for 2013 – 2016, which was developed by the Board in consultation with a range of stakeholders including our staff and our clients.
The Plan focuses on five key areas of our business:
Our Clients – providing exceptional service across all our programs; promoting choice, lifestyle and independence, and increasing our use of technology
Our People – supporting and developing our Board, our staff and our volunteers with enhanced tools and processes; planning for future workforce requirements, and implementing a leadership development program
Our Systems – developing and refining our systems to support our service delivery; investigating mobile services, and refining our tender management system
Our Quality – enhancing our quality management system and processes; developing an accreditation strategy, and maintaining our focus on organisational risk
Our Services – ensuring are services remain relevant to clients; expanding our services, and delivering services to our clients that they have identified as important to them
The Plan will guide our decisions over the next three years, as our business consolidates on our past actions and finds new ways to deliver services into the future, against a background of change – change in the Aged and Disability Sectors, change in the market, and change in the types of services and the way services are delivered to our clients.
The Strategic Plan for 2013 – 2016 supports Adssi HomeLiving Australia as a viable business; supports our clients through quality and innovative service delivery, and supports our Board, staff and our volunteers through development programs and increased use of technology. It will provide us with the platform to grow the business over the next three years and to provide an increased range of quality services to our clients.
