LIFESTYLE PLUS GROUP AND POLICE ASSOCIATION OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA PARTNER TO LAUNCH POLICE HOMECARE SERVICE

7 May 2024

The Police Association of South Australia has chosen Lifestyle Plus Group as its partner to operate a new homecare business to provide disability and aged care services to members of the Police Association of South Australia and their families, and the wider South Australian community.

Police HomeCare Services, which was recently officially launched in Adelaide by The Hon. Bill Shorten, Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), will provide care services including domestic support, personal care, community access, behavioral support, allied health services and complex care.

It’s a registered provider under both the NDIS and My Aged Care.

It will also provide pathways into future employment for police officers leaving the police service and wanting to continue working and serving the community.

Police HomeCare Services has established its head office in the Police Association of South Australia’s building on Carrington Street.

The immediate priority will be to provide services to Police Association of South Australia members and their families before expanding to provide services to the broader community.

Lifestyle Plus Group has a proven 10-year track-record of delivering personalised, high-quality community disability and aged care services to help its clients live life on their terms and actively participate in the community.

Lifestyle Plus Group Managing Director Wayne Boden said Police HomeCare Services has been established to disrupt some unacceptable norms that currently exist in the care services sector and lead the way towards a standard where transparency, dignity, and integrity in care is the highest priority.

“Demand for homecare services in the disability and aged care sectors will continue to grow. This will require high standards to be maintained across the care industry and new people to be attracted to work in the sector,” said Mr Boden.

“We aim to build on the trust that’s inherent in the police name to deliver high-quality care services within the community.

“We’re grateful for the faith that the Police Association has shown in us - a privilege and responsibility that we take very seriously.”

Mark Carroll, President, Police Association of South Australia said this partnership promises to pay significant dividends.

It’ll be an invaluable practical service to our members and an investment in the future of the association, said Mr Carroll.

“And there’s the added bonus of Police HomeCare Services being based in the Police Association building.”
