ACHIEVE ADDS 28 COMMUNITY HOMES IN WIN
Achieve Australia won a large tender for the delivery of Specialist Supported Living (SSL) services for people with disability living in 28 group homes owned by to NSW Ageing, Disability & Home Care (ADHC) in North Western Sydney.
In addition, another home in Dural accommodating four men has just transitioned to Achieve’s support from another provider. The families of the men selected Achieve after a thorough search and review process.
People living in the 28 ADHC homes will be supported by Achieve as from February 2018. Planning for the transition is already underway to ensure a seamless and safe transfer of people being supported, families and staff.
Achieve will assume responsibility for supporting 130 people with complex medical and behavioural support needs, many of whom previously lived in Large Residential Centres, including the Rydalmere and Marsden Centres. Approximately 300 ADHC staff will also move over to Achieve and remain in place in the homes to ensure continuity of care.
Achieve has a strong track record in devolutions of Large Residential Centres. It has supported the transition of more than 150 people out of multiple Centres to community homes that enable social inclusion. As a result, it already has in place evidence-based processes to support these transitions – including robust change management procedures and open communications with people being supported, families, staff and surrounding communities.
