About the business

 

We are an innovative new organisation that believes in changing the conversation around ageing and aged care, to truly focus on how fulfilling the later phases of life can be.

 

About the role

 

Providing companionship, domestic care and personal support in the homes of our clients, you will be their go-to person for all their domestic and personal assistance needs.

We are looking for people who are happy to be flexible and wear different hats as required - some days providing personal care, other days helping in the garden or kitchen, and still others driving our clients to social events or appointments.

You will work with a small group of clients in order to build meaningful relationships and make an impact in their lives.

 

Benefits and perks

 

We offer ongoing training and support for staff at all levels, as well as provide opportunities for career progression within our company.

You are not just another staff member, you are the most important person in the company! You will have regular opportunities to meet with management and other staff to discuss ideas and issues.

 

Skills and experience

 

You will be first and foremost a compassionate, friendly and patient person. You will genuinely have the drive to make a positive impact in people's lives.

You will have obtained or be in the process of obtaining a relevant qualification in aged care or personal support.

You will be comfortable working with clients in a personal care role including duties such as showering and assisting with dressing, and you will perform these duties while maintaining the absolute respect and dignity of the client.

A car and license is extremely advantageous.
