Avivo - Osborne Park WA


In 1967, Gwin Ruston established the Perth Emergency Housekeeping Service under the auspices of WACOSS.

The agency was incorporated in 1970. The initial purpose was to provide support in the home to ensure families could remain intact. Staff were employed as housekeepers and provided both live-in and visiting support.

Through the 1970s, funding was derived from a variety of government departments and fund raising. The target group gradually moved to cover a higher proportion of older people.

In 1985, the Home and Community Care Act brought together all the programs and funding sources into the HACC program.

Our name changed in 1987 to Perth Home Care Services.

Through the 1990s, the range of funding sources increased and included the aged care, disability and mental health sectors.
