About the Job.
Looking for a rewarding career in aged care, want to grow or transfer your skills and make a real difference in your local community that you love?
Join BaptistCare and support older people to live well in the comfort of their own homes. If you have the passion to support people to live independently and improve their quality of life in the place they call home, this could be the perfect job for you!
Don’t be daunted by the idea of starting something different – especially if you are new to aged care. BaptistCare is committed to supporting you every step of the way as you go through a detailed orientation, partner with a “buddy” out in the field, and have access to ongoing learning and support.
- Support and assistance with personal care such as showering and dressing.
- Household cleaning and laundry.
- Transport to and from appointments/shops.
- Work with each client to continue to do the things they love.
You will need to be comfortable working on your own in the community, have excellent verbal communication skills and have an empathetic, patient and caring nature. This role does require you to have an Australian driver’s license, and own a reliable motor vehicle with a minimum Third Party Property Damage car insurance as you need to travel to our clients’ homes.
