Our History

A history of caring!

We weren’t born yesterday! A.P. Care Services had its inception back in 1973 when Shirley Meredith took on Eastern Suburbs Babysitting Services, a service dedicated to assisting mothers enter the workforce.

Shirley changed the name to All Sydney Babysitting Services to encompass the greater Sydney area. Services extended beyond mothers entering the workforce to providing babysitters & nannies to guests at all Sydney’s top hotels as well as local services for parents wanting a night out. Of course privacy and confidentiality have always been at the forefront of services as we have provided nannies & sitters for some very well-known public icons, but we’ll never say who.

In 1990 a new company was born – All Parental Care. This company developed into our Ageing and Disability arm providing brokerage services to non-government and government funded programs such as Community Options, Centacare (now Catholiccare), Home Care Services of NSW and many more.

We provided support to the frail aged through assisting with activities of daily living, such as domestic assistance, social support, personal care, running errands and transportation. When supporting people with Disabilities we provided more complex care as required and community access.

Now 25 years later All Parental Care Australia (trading as A.P. Care Services) is still providing services to those same organisations – government and non-government. The program names have changed, and the policies, processes and procedures have evolved, however our philosophy and mission have remained strong.

At A.P. Care Services we believe in nurturing relationships, cherishing our existing relationships and developing new ones. We pride ourselves on providing reliable, quality, person centred and culturally diverse support to all ages. Our longest standing providers have been brokering services to us for 25years and our longest standing private or self-funded clients have been receiving support from us for over 20years.

In 2014 A.P. Care Services was successful in attaining funding for individuals with disabilities under ADHC through the Community Support Program.

Regarded as one of Sydney’s leading in-home care providers A.P. Care Services’ reputation and identity continues to flourish not only because of the care we take with all our clients but because of the dedication, respect and care provided by our exceptional staff.
