Care Service Employee (Current Employee) – Macquarie Park NSW – 16 May 2018
A typical day at work mainly consists of me assisting residents with daily activities and administrating medication.The hardest part of the job is when there is a shortness of staff on the shift rostered.

Care worker (Former Employee) – Macquarie Park NSW – 8 August 2017
Worked in the company close to eight months now. Started off well with the management and rostering and office being helpful. Sadly, as I got to know clients, many confided me the Macquarie Park office is a sham. Lies have been surfacing, actual client compassion and care are fabricational and services paid by the clients are not top priority by the rostering team. I was enforced to do a particular role at a premise I hadn't signed up for. With much invitation I was taken off it eventually but penalised as I went against management wishes. Since then my shifts have been affected. The dishonesty however, is unforgivable. I had a regular client for shopping, service was fortnightly and in the morning. Office rostered the service to the client in the afternoon (against client wishes), client calls me to see if I can assist in sorting that out. Tried to get hold of rostering regarding it for eight hours with no response. Received message at 6:30am by rostering informing client had cancelled service for the day. Second client into my shift, client calls me to see if I was doing the service that day. When mentioned of the message I received from the office, the client said they had never contacted the client. In short, office cancelled service without informing the client. One of many underhanded, expweriences I have come across. Resigning first presentable opportunity for a more honest and rewarding company who value their clients.
Pocket-money, YOU feel satisfied with what YOU can provide, not the company
You pay for office mistakes, wear and tear on car, long drives little petrol $$, don't let you work in your area, much more cons
Chef (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 28 June 2017
Enjoyed the time i worked there. Made good friends though i thought the decision to close the catering department was done with the only thought being to making profit on the sale of the property which to me goes against the Christian values they stand for
ex employee (Current Employee) – Rockingham WA – 21 June 2017
worst place ever i wouldn't put my worst enemy in this place, food is horrible and the management are terrible no idea of running a home, she thinks she has more degrees than a thermometer, her brown nosers make trouble and bully other staff members, god help these poor newbies that go in there like agency workers, they give them the most difficult and heaviest residents to attend to alone. some staff are really good in this place like the night staff but majority of day staff are just kissing the FMs starfish. do your self a favor and stay away from this place its a dump.
understaffed, bullying beyond believe, old and shabby.
Child and Youth Support Worker (Former Employee) – Adelaide SA – 15 June 2017
24/7 shift system is handy for life balance, but roster staff sometimes bully you into shifts you can't work or at placements you have bad experiences with. Other times there are zero shifts available so it's difficult to have a longstanding financial commitment like a mortgage. NO opportunity for career advancement or flexibility within the role, and the head office culture is absolutely toxic, arrogant and cliquey. No support for staff, managers impossible to track down, training is lacklustre. Pay rate is dismal for the work, absolutely unfair compensation for being abused on shift almost every day, and no support after any incidents other than a half-assed EAP offer. No supports in place for kids in residential care either, staff are simply a band-aid on the bigger issues Baptist Care ignore.
Care Services Employee (Former Employee) – Queanbeyan NSW – 1 May 2017
It was a great experience working at Baptist Care. It was a very respectful and lovable place to work. Management was helpful with great experience. The most enjoyable part of the job was chatting with old residents serving their last moments of life and sharing their life experiences. The hardest part was when residents leave this world forever and die.
Nurse (Current Employee) – Rockingham WA – 4 April 2017
A typical day consists of insuffient time to complete all required tasks, management continue ask increase the workload & recent staff redundancies mean the residents are not afforded time to just chat.
Happy workforce and residents who are happy and keen to be part of a community, although being rural and remote does have its difficulties/
Facility Manager (Current Employee) – Brookton WA – 12 February 2017
Working in a rural/remote area with currently minimal support from corporate services can be difficult, however the on-site workforce is excellent. Being head of a team that manages a facility for another provider has its pluses and negatives especially when it comes to finance. The current uncertainty with the situation has prompted me to investigate other employment options. I enjoy working with the elderly and am continuously looking for ways to improve my knowledge and skills. Making a difference in a resident and their families life as they enter the last stages is extremely vital to me, and I strive to achieve best results for all concerned.
