Care support services organisation, PACE Care, is thrilled to be expanding west as it welcomes Adina Care in Cootamundra to its shared services network.
Adina Care joins PACE Care’s existing members, including leading Central Coast-based aged care and community support services, as the first member in Western NSW.
PACE Care was founded in 2013 with an aim of assisting independent, not-for-profit aged care and community support organisations to maintain financial viability and competitiveness. Its unique shared services model allows member organisations to share resources, training, development, and administration.
Underpinned by this collaborative spirit, PACE Care and its existing members are excited to welcome Adina Care into the network. General Manager Corporate Services Greg Worrall says. “We look forward to sharing our services with Adina Care and providing them with new opportunities for growth and improvement.”
Adina Care is a community owned, not-for-profit organisation, offering excellence in residential aged care, respite care and palliative care for community members of Cootamundra and surrounds.
Adina Care’s CEO, Graeme Sloane, is also excited about becoming a full member, explaining that it was a logical step for the organisation who have been affiliated with PACE Care for several years. “It has been a challenging couple of years for the aged care industry, so the support from PACE Care’s services will allow us to address all our business needs, while ensuring our costs and back-office systems are effective and efficient”, he explains.
In NSW, only one in five residential aged care services is independently run. When an independent provider hits tough times, like those caused by the pandemic, it can become increasingly difficult for them to remain independent.
PACE Care is striving to change this by offering its members lower cost financial, accounting, payroll, procurement and office administration support services.
