Founded by sisters Linda Summerton and Janet Gibbins in 2003, Advanced Care Australia’s objective is to enhance our clients’ independence and quality of life.
The company was born out of the sisters’ experience when their father was terminally ill. As he was keen to stay at home, they looked in vain for an organisation that could provide support to enable this and offer a flexible service that adapted to the family’s changing needs.
Frustrated by their experience, they began Advanced Care Australia to provide flexible, responsive in-home support.
