Welcome to Wesley Social Support

Origins

Wesley Social Support has evolved out of Wesley Mission’s aged care services. The service was first offered as part of a broader range of help at home services in 2005. These services began out of a recognition that many of the older people Wesley Mission was in contact with were not ready to enter an aged care facility and, with a little bit of help with everyday tasks, would be able to remain independent in their own homes.

Today Wesley Social Support is part of a suite of services Wesley Mission offers to people who would like to remain independent in their own homes. These services can be accessed directly through Wesley Mission or through Australian Government programs such as Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) or Home Care Packages, a coordinated set of service packages tailored to meet an individual’s specific needs.

Commitment to care

Wesley Mission is committed to giving people every opportunity to live a full and happy life. This includes respecting people’s decision to stay independently in their home and working with them to take appropriate steps so they can do this for as long as possible.

Wesley Mission takes great care to ensure that the social support we provide meets the needs of those living in their own homes who do not wish to be isolated.

Wesley Social Support services complement the vast array of Wesley Mission’s other services that enable people to stay safely and comfortably in their homes for longer, such as home modification and maintenance, personal care, domestic assistance and transport services.

At Wesley Mission we are committed to offering person centred care that allows the decisions and choices of those we work with to guide the type of support we provide. We   place a high regard on respecting the privacy, dignity and freedom of choice of those we work with.
