Care Aide (Current Employee) – Perth WA – 11 April 2018
Working at Silver Chain is great. I've been there for a bit over ten years. I love working in the community because I believe that with the right support older people and people with disabilities have the right to live in the community. I do my best each and every visit to create a positive atmosphere and provide a high standard of care. Silver Chain supports me to do so with training and good support.
Resource Coordinator Bunbury and Osborne Park WA (Current Employee) – Osborne Park WA – 17 October 2018
Unfortunately it took the fact that they wouldn't hire more staff and instead pushed us to work more (no extra pay) for me to realise they don't care about their staff and instead care about the dollar amount.

Strategy Implementation Officer (Former Employee) – Perth WA – 19 July 2017
Silver Chain is an amazing organisation helping thousands of people with health care issues. Always looked forward to going to work, not only because I loved what I did, but having the right manager and team driven by the same set of values, made work enjoyable. I worked there for 5 years and was continuously presented with development and growth opportunities, I had 4 roles in 5 years. I am a people person so thoroughly enjoyed building strong relations and collaborations, to get the work done and have positive outcomes. I loved my role as it gave me that opportunity to meet, engage and form collaborations for projects, getting ownership to responsibilities, finding solutions to issues and seeing projects through to successful end. I love challenges and that is what my last two roles provided.

Coordinator (Former Employee) – Maddindton 6109 – 9 September 2015
Normally a 6.30am start to organise rosters for our drivers for the day's deliveries and equipment pick ups of relevant medical equipment (eg electric hospital beds) for palliative care clients. Monitor the cleaning and maintenance of our medical equipment for occupational and safety requirements. As National Purchasing Officer I was responsible for the investigation, pricing and acquisition of bio medical equipment for our home care and medical staff. In addition, I was responsible for the annual servicing and calibration of said equipment held by our clinics and staff throughout Western Australia. The work load was too much for one person and necessitated me working long hours to fulfil the requirements of the position. Numerous requests for assistance were ignored and seemed to fall on deaf ears! The most rewarding part of my position was assisting our palliative care clients through an often sad and difficult time dealing with the inevitable loss of a loved one.
That I brought some sunshine and hope into the homes of our palliative care clients.

Resource Co-Ordinator (Former Employee) – Bunbury – 5 March 2015
The atmosphere was absolutely appalling where I was based. I was an Resource Co-Ordinator.I ended up leaving during my Probationary Period as the lack of respect to everyone in the business, everyone critising everyone behind everyone's back, there is no support, never any laughs, never any positive feedback (only negative). This is NOT the environment you would ever want to work in.
Very client focused. Great team environment. All staff very supportive.
