Very stressful

Always short staffed, working under tremendous amount of pressure. Management do not support the staff and do not appreciate the amount of work the carers do.

Aweful company to work for

There is little i can i say about this organisation that is positive. Do not trust their job descriptions. Working for this organisation they expected managerial position yet they advertised the position as one of a 'clerical' duties. They openly discussed how they are going to fire the next you

Friendly, Fun work place

At Brightwater Care group I was made to feel part of a supportive and friendly team. Although you are working independently with clients you never feel alone, Team Leaders and Scheduling staff are always a phone call away and are more than helpful with any queries. The ongoing training provided by bright water makes you feel increasingly confident in your roll as a community support worker. There are also numerous opportunities during training to meet other support workers and share ideas. The clients in Brightwater are truly enjoyable to work with and often make work a fun, enjoyable place to be. The hardest Part of the Job i found was working alone on a daily basis. However the team meetings and training provides a time to share concerns and ideas with other workers.

Open plan office - all ladies

I start work at 0830 and finish at 1630. My job is people based. I take numerous phone calls from staff with pay queries, shift allocations and general questions. I really do enjoy my job but am finding due to the cuts in aged care funding that my job might be in jeopardy which concerns me. I would love to stay in the Mandurah/Rockingham area.

Pros

Fabulous staff

Cons

Job security

They help their employees out to develop professionally with all the free training and seminars given to ensure staff are skilled enought to wotk in the feild. They also give free crrt 3, enrolled nursing and registered nursing to employees who wish to apply for scholarship. All the co workers were very friendly snd professional. They provide lots and lots of support specially to people who work in the field. All issues were addressed right away. Office are on call 24/7 when you need them rhey are just once call away.

Pros

Great company, good benefits, lots of support from supervisors

Cons

None.

Alot of traveling

I had to call on 6 different clients per day from Rockingham to Melville I learned to keeping client records to becoming more confident in communication with diverse cultures The hardest part of the job was to keep my clients happy The most enjoyable part was seeing my clients facial expressions when I call to their house and the were delighted to see me.

Pros

salary sacrifice

Cons

long hours and alot of traveling

Hard work, good colleagues, mentally draining, physically taxing.

Start at 7 am, shower residents, hoist into wheelchairs, assist with meals, toilet when needed, empty laundry and rubbish skips, get abused by some residents, get thanked by others for what I do. I've learned I can not continue in this career for much longer. Our deputy care manager has no communication skills, and she is quite rude and abrupt with everyone. The manager is very understanding and will listen to us, she has only been with us a short time, hopefully it'll be longer. My colleagues are very good, we work well as a team. The hardest part of the job is the extreme complexities of some of our residents. We are supposed to be aged care but it's getting more like mental health! The most enjoyable part of my job is working with most of my colleagues, we have a laugh and a social life outside of work.

Pros

Salary sacrifice, friends.

Cons

Deputy care manager, complex residents, physical/ emotional situations with them.

Under staffed

It would be of huge benefit to both the residents and workers at the facility to have more staff on the floor. The patient to staff ratio creates stress and results in a lower level of care provided. The work place culture also contributes to poor practice in areas such as manual handling due to having a high work load and being time poor.

fun work place great people

some residents are just amazing will always miss them. will never run out of work, improvement and education of all Staff a major advantage for all concerned. Everything accomplished and stride towards is focused on providing better care of their residents with some nurses and carers going beyond their duties. Sometimes being overlooked. Brightwater the oaks is a fantastic facility and Brightwater should be proud of the staff that work there.

Pros

brillent teamship

Cons

bad compo support

Was this review helpful?

Very rewarding environment to work in.

Typical day at this work place started with smiles and daily greetings from co workers and residents. I learned how aged care worked on a day to day basis also how to communicate with family members that did not understand the ageing process and certain diseases such as dementia. My co workers were friendly and cared for the residents and the job title they had. Hardest part of the job was not seeing residents have regular visits from family and friends but also having the experience i had knew that it was hard for the family etc to understand. Enjoyment from aged care work for me comes from forming trusting relationships with residents and seeing smiles and laughter and making them comfortable in their last years of life.

Pros

free counselling for workers and immediate family, free tea/coffee/morning tea.

Cons

no government funding etc
