A fourth home and community care provider has joined the expanding ADSSI group.
Not-for profit provider Dungog and District Neighbourcare (DDN) is the latest organisation to merge with ADSSI, joining Maitland Community Care Services (MCCS), Beresfield & District Community Care (BCC) and Central Coast/Northern Sydney based Adssi In-home Support.
The merger came into effect on January 1.
Neighbourcare provides support for older people and people living with disability via services such as Meals on Wheels, Transport, Home Care Packages and NDIS support.
Like the other organisations in the ADSSI group, Neighbourcare will retain its name, identity, clients, staff and volunteers.
ADSSI CEO Jenni Allan says Neighbourcare’s decision to join the ADSSI group will have mutual benefits.
“By combining our expertise and resources, we can learn from each other. We will be stronger and better able to remain competitive in the deregulated marketplace”, she said.
“Importantly, we will be able to offer all our clients more services and greater choice as we expand’, she said.
The combined entity ADSSI Limited is a $26M not-for-profit business which employs hundreds of local staff across the four sites, and provides home and community services to around around 16,500 people.
ADSSI announced its merger with Beresfield last January.
