HOME AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT CARE WORKER (Casual) (Former Employee) – Cairns QLD – 19 December 2018
Great company to work with/for, just lacks support and the care factor. Great training but can never hard to get in touch with management. Give you all the tools you need to do the job. Response times are messed about for attending to client's
Personal Care Worker (Current Employee) – Brisbane QLD – 17 December 2018
A very well set up company that looks after its workers well. The level of care to the residents is of a high standard. A typical day at work involves providing cares, assisting with meals and keeping documentation of care provided up to date. I have learned more than just basic care, I have learned how to identify pain in residents with dementia, how to resolve it and how to report. Management is very open with its workers and encourages dialogue. The workplace culture is very welcoming. The hardest part of the job is when a resident passes away. The company does offer to counsel staff members if a resident passes away suddenly in care. There is nothing as satisfying as seeing the smiles on the residents' faces when they say thank you for looking after them.
Personal Care Worker (Former Employee) – Brisbane QLD – 26 November 2018
This is a great job for people who are passionate about helping and caring for the elderly. Its a tough job with not the best pay but you can work your way up. If you didn't like a client you still had to do it, but staff are great and supportive.
Support Worker (Former Employee) – Blue Care Wynnum – 23 November 2018
I would do the cleaning for clients in the community and the work culture was good. The hardest part of the job was the cleaning in the hot weather and the enjoyable part of the job was helping the clients.
community based so we got to know our regular clients
Cleaner - Part Time (Former Employee) – Beenleigh QLD – 9 November 2018
I loved my clientele, when working in the community, we learned alot about each other and I was grateful to provide them with my services whilst employed with the company, they looked forward to my visits either on a regular or fortnightly basis, I provided them with support and cleaned their house to take the load off them and which allowed them to stay comfortably in the home, I had a good repore with majority of my clients which I still on occasions pop into see them when I'm within the vicinity, they are surprised to see me but very pleased for the visit
lovely people, flexibility, the working enviornment changed hour or being community based, having cuppas with my clients
some grumpy clients not many, rate of pay was pretty ordinary, no company car
I was accepted for position as Clinical Nurse and a proposed starting date. I was stood up twice 'citing paper work was not yet complete' then 2 weeks later company changes their contract offer and declined my position. ( Never in my career have been I neen treated in this manner). It is unacceptable BlueCare, and I will not be applying to this company in the future.
I worked alongside the Occupational therapists and allied health team at blue care for four weeks during my third year block placement.
Bluecare ensured that I had multiple experiences to assist develop my understanding of OT including multiple home visits to clients. My supervisor ensured that we were able to meet our learning goals and provided us with multiple exposures to community occupational therapy. I learnt the benefit of community exercise programs for older adults; including hydrotherapy and tai chi. I was taught how to recommend equipment, apply for equipment grants, and discuss with nursing staff when to refer to OT regarding equipment safety. Multiple opportunities were made available to discuss equipment with providers and attend in-services.
Furthermore much focus was placed on pressure care and falls prevention as the majority of our caseload were on my aged care packages. Students were invited to join the allied health team at a regional conference addressing falls prevention.
My typical day at work, would to login to the procure apt so, we can reach the CRM. The phone would be ringing as soon as you are there. We answer at least 70-100 calls and there are Three receptionists to answer these calls from clients, asking when the Nurse or Cleaners would be arriving. We might have to book transport for certain clients. We would have to make notes to send to the schedulers, rostering Crew, to let them know of a clients, cancellations or to place a hold on their schedules, as they might be on holidays or not home on that particular day.
The Day goes fast.
Very full on, hard to understand some clients accents.
Hospitality All Rounder/ Personal Carer (Current Employee) – Mareeba QLD – 18 July 2018
I learned to care so much to people not related to me. I love the people I work with and love to come to work everyday because of them. But the hardest part of the job is the other staff that bully instead of supporting each other.
Assistant in Nursing (Former Employee) – Brassal QLD – 11 May 2018
I worked for one in brassel in Ipswich and found the company uncaring to new staff when it came to bulling from older staff they lacked proper investigation and the good stafff that where caring for new staff were put under pressure to complete there tasks even with new staff beside them and where not praised countless times they were under staffed even though they keep employeing new casual which still left casual fighting for shifts
