A good working environment. Looking after elder clients is always a challenge. Good communication skills is needed when working with the elderly. Good team work.

A walk-in from the department would reveal lack of consistency with documentation. An audit would reveal staff working outside their scope of practice.
Management do not address culture issues, instead they bully hard working, dedicated staff.

The hardest part is getting management to address the issues noted in the many incident reports logged.

The most enjoyable part is assisting the lovely residents.

Management is not supportive, training is terrible. You don’t get paid hourly for on call! Worst place I’ve ever worked at. They lied at the interview stating the job was cruise, turns out it was just the opposite. Had to fight to be paid hourly. Worked until 11 pm and up at 4.45 each morning, not enough time to rest. Would never recommend to work with them. Very deceitful. HR manager was the most unprofessional, nasty and rude.

The manager was racist and biased. She frustrated all people of colour. She had her purple circle group who she listened to only. She accused workers of things they didn't do in order to get rid of them. Going to work everyday was like torture. She removed hours from staff and gave them to her favourites.

Some lovely staff, some not so nice staff! Very rushed!!!! Not enough time allowed or used to the best outcome! A lot of overworked, under appreciated staff!
Management has changed multiple times so unsure what they are like! I think way to much is expected of all staff by both management and some staff! We all need to remember that this is the residents home and should be treated accordingly!

Being trained in this entity was a big personality and skills in cleaning, laundry, and kitchen for the residents in the Home Care environment. It was a fun-filled challenging yet rewarding experience.

SCCWA took a long time prossesing and finally placing me in a position in their company. I was on hold for at least a month.
Having to work under a Perth based set up when working in regional Broome made it a very frustrating experience to say the least. So much to say. So little space to do so.

I was head cook at this company , I received a lot of great feedback for my cooking and built regular customers that were sad to see me move onto nursing . I also worked in the bar and managed the tavern when the owners were not on premise .
