We are a not-for-profit organisation delivering community health and care services across Australia. We help people of all ages to receive the care they need to remain happy and healthy at home. We focus on individual strengths and abilities and offer our support and guidance where needed.
The 2014/15 financial year continued to see Silver Chain Group pursue its mission with vigour and enthusiasm. As a purpose driven organisation, our goal to deliver high value care for people to help them stay at home continues to inform our strategic posture with respect to solving some of society’s biggest problems.
This year we celebrated 110 years of caring for Western Australians. From our humble beginnings as a small district nursing service in 1905, today we provide care to over 84,000 people every year across Australia.
The year 2015 could best be characterised as disruptive for Silver Chain Group’s services. The implementation of the Federal Government’s Aged Care Reforms have resulted in significant changes to the delivery of social care services (such as aged care and disability) not seen in the last 25 years.
This year the Home Support Service continued to increase support to new and existing clients and communities within the Perth metropolitan area, which has ensured more and more people able to live independently in their place of choice.
It has been a busy year in Country Services. We have grown the reach of our services across regional, rural and remote Western Australia, increasing access to both social and health services across the state.
