About us

Wesley Mission has been ministering to a community with lifestyle needs for over 200 years. Our community includes the vulnerable and marginalised. It includes people who are lonely, hurt and fragile, the homeless, living with mental illness, elderly, living with a disability and unemployed. We believe it takes love, faith, and commitment to engage actively in the lives of those around us. Our services are as diverse as the needs we face, so we shape our programs, activities and services to support those most in need – whoever they are. 

Wesley Home & Residential Care assists aged people and those living with a disability to lead fulfilling lives, encouraging those supported to maintain independence and achieve their unique social, physical and spiritual needs.

About the program

The TACP PLUS Program is a joint Commonwealth and State Government funded initiative. The program aims to assist older people regain physical and psychosocial functioning after a hospital stay. A key aim of the Program is to avoid readmission to hospital or a premature admission to residential aged care for older people who have had a recent hospital stay.

The Program aims also to assist individuals with complex needs, younger people with disabilities, and their carers to live in the community and to access necessary supports. Three additional community-based services are also provided within this program including ComPacks – a non-clinical support service, Dementia Support Service – flexible and in home day respite and the Community Care Team.

Covering the Inner West Region, TACP PLUS is delivered by Wesley in partnership with Sydney Local Health District in areas of Ashfield, Burwood, Canada Bay, Canterbury, Leichhardt, Marrickville, Strathfield, and part of the City of Sydney.
