ARV has a higher rate of pay than average.
Ongoing training provided.
Career developement opportunities for the right candidates.
Excellent dementia specific training by outside organisations such as Alzheimer's Australia.
Staff are, for the most part, genuinely wonderful to work with, with a shared passion for delivering quality care.
There is often a lack of communication between management and staff. Also, there is a tendency by management towards favouritism of some staff over others, based on the personal opinion of management and supervisors. This has lead to a lack of career development for those employees who are not in the clique.
Furthermore, some ARV managers/supervisors tend to take constructive criticism or legitimate grievances as a personal attack. Overall, one's experience would depend on the culture and management of the particular facility in which they worked.
Higher rate of pay. Ongoing training and developement.
Lack of communication from the top down. Bias shown by management towards some employees.
