Home is where the heart is…
Aged care has changed alot of the past 20-years and we are proud to have been part of every moment of it. Our philosophy when we were starting out way back in the early 2000’s was to provide the best in home care service possible.
We have stuck to this winning philosophy as it has held true for both our clients and our business. The future is as exciting as where we have come from, and our rapid growth coupled with the support of the government will steer us on a steady course for many years to come.
Old Fashioned Care
Addison Home Care is a private Nursing agency which provides care to Disability and Aged Care patients in the comfort of their own homes. Since 2002 we have been providing this care.
We specialise in long term and 24-hour care. We provide care, with a minimum of 4 hours per day, up to 24- hour around the clock care.
We use specialised Registered, Enrolled and Assistant Nurses, as well as Support workers and experienced careers.
Each client’s care is tailored to meet their individual needs. It is assessed by Hayley or Camilla, both Registered Nurses who have been working in the Aged Care sector for more than 20 years. We pride ourselves on providing quality nurses and continuity of care and this we believe is paramount for the care to be successful.
Addison Home Care has 3 offices and provides care in Sydney, the Southern Highlands and Brisbane.
We work closely with St Vincent’s Private and Public Hospitals in Sydney, as well as the Wolper Hospital in Sydney.
We work closely with The Mater Hospital and The Wesley Hospital in Brisbane.
We work closely with The Sothern Highlands Private and Bowral Hospital in the Sothern Highlands.
We also work with individual patient’s G.P’s and Geriatricians, as well as other Specialist doctors.
The Very Best Care Available for You
We provide care plans that are as unique as you. There are no cookie cut solutions here just dedicated staff committed to your care.
Just because you need a specific type or a higher level of care doesn’t mean that you need to pay more. We provide the most cost effective solutions in the Australian market.
Highly Trained Staff
All of our nurses are highly experienced and enjoy the ongoing training and career development that we make available to them
Hayley Addison RN
Hayley works closely with St Vincent’s Hospitals in Sydney and Brisbane to this day. I’m sure the sisters of charity would be very proud!
She studied a Bachelor of Nursing at the University of Sydney from 1995-1997.
She then Worked as a Registered Nurse in various Hospitals, mainly in Emergency Departments and Community Nursing in Sydney. Hayley also worked in various hospitals in London as a Registered Nurse as well as private Nursing in London. It was in London that Hayley knew she would be working with individual patients in their homes for the rest of her life. It was her calling.
In 2002 Hayley moved back to Sydney and had her first child. Shortly after he was born, so was Addison Home Care. It was by chance at a rugby match at the University of Sydney, where Hayley was watching her younger Brother play, that Hayley fell into a private Nursing job that would change her life forever. She was asked to look after a very well know family in Point Piper in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. Hayley started on her own, but then very quickly needed reinforcements. Fortunately, she knew plenty of nurses who were also looking for some part time work.
Addison Home Care quickly became one of the most privately talked about nursing agencies in Sydney. To this day, we have never advertised. It is only through word of mouth that people know we exist. We actually like it this way, as people know us and we know them. They are like an extension of our own family. It is similar to this with our nurses. We know them all personally. We are very thorough with whom we take on. Being a nurse definitely helps. You know exactly the type of person you are looking for and you also know the clients very well. It’s a matter of matching the two.
Addison Home Care Brisbane started in 2011. I actually found out I was pregnant with my 3rd child the day after, Camilla and I decided to start it. Camilla is my best friend. We attended the University of Sydney together, both studying Nursing at the same time. I was very reluctant to start a business with my best friend, as I thought this would be the end of our friendship. But to my disbelief, we are still looking after patients in Brisbane to date. Their has not been a hiccup. Camilla has been living in Brisbane since 2006. Camilla is very experienced in Palliative Care. She is really kind and caring and a lot nicer than I. We make a really good team, and we are constantly feeding off one another.
Camilla now manages the whole of Brisbane, and I am very blessed to have her on our team.
Addison Home Care Southern Highlands started during COVID 2020. My Brother, Mitchell actually lost his job during COVID and came to help me as we were so busy and needed someone we could trust. From this moment Addison Home Care Southern Highlands started.
Mitch now lives and runs Addison Home Care in the Southern Highlands. We work together, as Mitch is a retired professional Rugby Player and brings a very different perspective to the business. He is very analytical and thorough, doesn’t give in easily and no job is too difficult. We work very well together. He knows a lot of people in the Sothern Highlands, which makes it a very personal task for him each day. The Southern Highlands is a very community focused area. Which we love, as word of mouth travels very quickly. We love that many residents of the Highlands, choose not to go to residential facilities but want to live their lives in their beautiful manors and we can help them make that happen.
We will continue to serve those less fortunate and always look after those in need. Something that Hayley was taught at St Vincent’s College in Sydney, by the sisters of charity.
In 2019 I retired from rugby and moved back to Sydney with my family and dog. Having a builder as a father I was always interested in the construction industry and so commenced a full-time role in project management with a private construction company. I worked on large scale projects in the fit-out and refurbishment sector.
Since May 2020, I have been working at Addison Home Care as a Business Manager. Due to our ageing population, the pandemic, and the shift in preference for tailored care at home versus nursing home care, our small business has been extremely busy. My role involves managing and overseeing the compliance, risk management and governance of the business which is very rigid in the health industry. We have just become an approved NDIS provider in recent months. AHC is also in the process of becoming a public funded aged care provider which we hope to attain in the next financial year. Another objective for 2022 is to expand AHC’s operations to the Southern Highlands region. It is an exciting opportunity for the business to branch out from the traditional headquarters of Sydney and Brisbane.
I am passionate about working in small business, offering tailored and personal care opportunities, staying true to our core values and helping others. Outside of AHC I am involved in coaching rugby teams, spending time with my young family and keen to develop my golfing and cycling as I begin to make the transition down to the Southern Highlands.
Camilla Delpy RN
I grew up in Sydney before moving to Brisbane at the end of 2005. I studied my nursing degree at Sydney University between 1994-1997. Post Graduating I worked at St George hospital in Kogarah where I worked in different wards to build up my experience and knowledge. I did become passionate about working in oncology and palliative care. After a couple of years I left the Australian shores and worked in a very busy London hospital in a high dependency unit for nearly two years. This was a wonderful experience, and I learned a lot during this time.
After returning to Australia I worked in various hospitals and fields again and then spent some time working in ICU before deciding on a career change for while. I have spent many years working as a medical sales representative working with many GPs, some specialists and nurses.
However, its my passion for making a real difference in people’s lives that has made me continue to work in the nursing profession, joining Hayley to bring special care to people in their own homes here in Brisbane. We complement each other very well, and as best friends we know each others strengths and work together closely in bringing the best possible care we can for our clients.
I am truly honoured and privileged to do what I do. My passion is in general aged care and palliative care, however, I will always go out of my way to help anyone in need if I can. I love interacting with people and making a difference in their lives. Meeting all our clients and families personally and seeing how we can help, especially if they are going through a tough time. I’d like to think that even if I can only help in a small way, it may just make a little bit of a positive difference to them.
I also love working and heading up our team of wonderful carers and nurses who help provide the care to our beautiful clients every day.
Out of work I enjoy spending time with my two very active and beautiful boys; family and friends. I like getting out on the water when I can and enjoy a bit of kayaking, travel and a good red wine now and then.
