The beginningsOUR HISTORY

2001

Amberlea Aged Care, Drouin

The Alliance Care Services Group (ACSG) commenced as an Approved Provider of aged care in 2001, when it applied for and received its first 60 allocated places in Drouin, Victoria. These places were to form part of ACSG’s first Residential Aged Care home known as Amberlea Aged Care. The founders had a clear vision to:

* Investigate aged care needs within Gippsland in consultation with the local community and health and aged care service providers;
* Establish services that meet the current and future aged care needs of the community and develop high quality aged care homes for the ageing population;
* Design and construct quality state-of-the-art facilities;
* Recruit well-trained and experienced staff and foster their professional development, and
* Provide the highest quality care, lifestyle, hospitality and accommodation
* To provide residents and their families choices in accommodation and services

2008

Heritage Manor Aged Care, Morwell.

ACSG applied this same vision, experience and expertise to build and operate another Residential Aged Care home, ‘Heritage Manor Aged Care’ in Morwell.
2016

Abbey Gardens, Warragul

In late November 2016 ACSG completed construction and opened its third home ‘Abbey Gardens’ in Tarwin Street, Warragul.
Now

Alliance Care Services Group (ACSG)

Since then, ACSG has succeeded in manifesting its vision, as exemplified by the reputation of its aged care services and facilities in the community.
ACSG has proactively procured further approvals and planning permits across the three sites, which will enable expansion of the facilities in future in response to increasing demand in the community.

This has safeguarded the ability of ACSG to achieve its vision over the longer term. Throughout the evolution of the company, the group has continued to engage with Local, State and Commonwealth Governments as well as local community groups and service providers.

ACSG currently employs over 350 staff and anticipate that more job opportunities will result from the expansions of each facility.

Abbey Gardens has been the product of 15 years’ experience and understanding of the aged care industry. It is a spacious 120 bed home that features many living and lifestyle space both internally and externally. This includes several large lounge and sitting room area, 3 dining rooms, a lifestyle area, a café, a cinema, library, doctors, physio, occupational therapy and massage suites and other more intimate areas to sit with family members and visitors.

Overall there are currently approximately 150 staff members who are committed to the best care, lifestyle, hospitality, catering, maintenance and administration.
