I worked at Anglicare for a year and a half.People were very supportive, but this was my second job.I was promoted as a Supervisor in my first job so I had to quit Anglicare. I will work there again if given a chance. The residents are very happy and treated with respect. The food they serve to the residents are 5 star class. Cleanliness is of high standard.

HR Manager is a corporate psychopath and a bully.

She is a micro manager and undermines work.


Work is not values or appreciated by managers.


Lack.of PD

Not the best workplace culture - lots of things said but no action ever taken, poor ability to progress in the workplace and lack of mentorship or training provided

I enjoyed working at AnglicareSA Grange for the most part, but was prohibited from caring for the residents up to a standard I (and as it turns out the government - accreditation) found acceptable. This was due to a strong emphasis by management on cutting costs wherever possible. When management were confronted about this they would blame upper management and "the industry" rather than try to work out solutions to unacceptable problems. They'd even blame the residents, suggesting certain residents were known for making things up (despite all evidence to suggest they were telling the truth).

Cutting costs means cutting staff. When staff/carers are cut, standards drop dramatically as it's simply not possible to keep up. This means that things soon spiral out of control.

For example, the carers might not have time to toilet the resident properly and so the resident then might as a consequence use more continence pads. The managers will then complain that carers are using too many continence pads, making the decision to lock the spare pads up. Carers are then held up having to go find a nurse to unlock the room with the spare pads (and sign off on getting an extra pad). This leads to the carer either deciding that "the pad isn't that bad, we'll leave it on" or the extra time spent doing the right thing resulting in other residents not having their care needs met in a timely manner. That's one example.. but when an entire facility is run like that it's best to move on.
Pros
Great nurses, residents and carers
Cons
Lousy management and strong emphasis on cutting costs wherever possible

Assisting clients to secure or maintain housing.
Liaising with various organisations daily to assist with emergency accommodation when required. Attending scheduled and unscheduled home visits. Keep concise case notes. Attend meetings with or on behalf of clients.


I learnt a lot in this position. Mainly about the importance of empowering others to give them the tools required to lead more secure lives. I also gained a lot of knowledge around different cultures and to respect these differences while being able to assist in combining these beliefs and expectations to enable the stability around housing issues.


Support from management was paramount within our team. I held management in high regard due to their support with complex issues that often arose.


The most difficult part of the job was seeking the appropriate services for individual clients. With an increase in demand this became very challenging.


Positive outcomes were the most rewarding parts of the job. Small achievements were always celebrated.
Pros
Ongoing education, courses. Challenging
Cons
Challenging, Lack of available services to support clients.

Productive but a bit challenging. I have learned that If you work as a team you achieve a lot of good things than working alone. The people at Anglicare are so nice especially my team, they treat everyone with respect and support one another when in need. the hardest part of my internship was finding the zones, policy and desired characters for the housing site analysis. And the most enjoyable part of the is having free food and sacks.
Pros
Free food sometimes
Cons
long hours sometimes

a typical day would begin by sorting out the new arrival stuff and getting rid of anything that was gross or ripped. then you would go through all of the plate and dishware and see what was good to keep and what wasnt.
