Meet Angela

With a caring nature and a genuine desire to enhance the lives of others, Angela Feery-Richards had a vision to meet the growing need for personalised in-home care and support services. Angela’s industry related background and experience made it possible to pursue her passion. Having held the following executive roles in the health care industry:

  • Director, Corporate & General Services at Peter McCallum Cancer Institute.
  • Chief Executive Officer of St John of God, a private psychiatric hospital.

Angela went on to provide valued consulting services to corporates within the health care sector. Recognising that many people living with a disability or experiencing the challenges of ageing would prefer to remain in the comfort of their own home, it was time to make a difference.

Well-equipped with a Bachelor of Health Administration and a Master of Business Administration, Angela established Simply Helping in 1998 in regional Victoria. Building a reputation for tailoring excellent personalised care solutions, Simply Helping has been able to help thousands of people from all walks of life by supporting their independence and lifestyle.

Today, as we continue to expand across Australia, each Simply Helping location is owned and managed by locals who share Angela’s values and strong connections with their community.

Personalised, Flexible In-Home Care

Whether your requirements are short term, or you need more complex long term assistance, we offer a wide range of flexible, personalised in-home care including aged care, disability care home help, personal care, transport, companionship, home maintenance, gardening and more. Through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), we have assisted many people to achieve even better outcomes.

Our care workers are reference checked, police checked and hold a current Working With Children Check for your safety and peace of mind. We pride ourselves on extending professional, considerate and safe in-home care services.

Successful in-home care is built on trusting relationships and tailored solutions. We invest the time to carefully match your individual requirements with the skills and experience of our carers. Our consumer feedback system ensures that you are happy with the carer who is responsible for your well-being.

We are delighted that many of our participants and team members have been with us for more than 12 years.

My family and I have employed the services of Simply Helping Geelong and Barwon over the last 5 months in caring for our elderly mother. We had a brief and unsatisfactory experience in a local nursing home so decided to set Mum up with home care in her own home, we were very pleased to see an improvement in mum’s emotional and physical well being over this period.

The Simply Helping Carers have gone about their work with great care and dedication and we thank them all for their continued support. Harvey and the team have provided a great service and I would recommend Simply Helping to anyone in a similar situation.


Well the first week went extremely well and today care worker Connie came for the first time.
We were here to greet her for the first time and go through Karen’s routine.
All the girls have been great, and Karen loves them all, to see her so happy with what has been the biggest change for her and us since forever.

We really just want to thank you and all the people responsible for interviewing and selecting the girls to care for Karen, as we could not be happier with how things have gone so far – so a big thank you.
