My typical day at work was very stressful I can’t fault everything while working for VMCH I had some good memories, I did learn a lot a specialy in first few years then lots of changes in management, didn’t feel appreciate it at all except my clients and their family they gave me lots of support and for that I thank all the clients and their family at VMCH
One cannot hve input on a resident, its managements way or the HIGHWAY, you are made to feel little by particilar RNS, then when you address the situation, there is always an eccuse..love my job hate management
Management are horrible
The culture is fun and fast paced. The work is meaningful by supporting people with disabilities and older people live the life they choose. The leadership of the CEO - especially through COVID has been excellent.
Rarely any social staff time with Team. Working autonomously a lot of the time or with one other worker under difficult circumstances or with children with complex needs and behaviours.
collaborative Team workers.
no set meal breaks, only meals eaten when possible.
I have worked for VMCH for many years and found the organisation good to work for with many roles available and good advancement. The merge and changes to management were difficult however, they have settled and business is starting to run smoothly.
I work in a day program in villa maria.This program includes activities for the clients with disability to encourage them to develope their skills in those activities,like swimming,music,yoga,listening stories,interactive interactions,music and movements etc.It is very interesting to interact with innocent people and enjoyable too.We have to be very careful about their health matters like epilepsy management.It is very enjoyable to make them happy when they do beautiful craft works.
I have worked for the facility for 6 years now. Since VMCH have taken over not much as changed. We still have the same amount of carers on the floor with an increasing number of resident's with high care needs, as we are aging in place and no longer send resident's requiring more care to another facility. The building itself is quite dated, not equipped with facilities big enough for residents requiring machines to transfer them, bathrooms are small, there is not much room for storage of machines. We used to have a dementia specific area with secured doors for safety, those doors are taken down and everyone is mixed together creating many more behaviours with people with dementia being in a loud environment and often they are able to abscond from the facility with visitors putting them in increasing danger of becoming lost and harmed. A new facility was proposed to be built 3years ago, nothing has eventuated and we are left with a facility that was never built for any of this.

The HR department bully and intimidate employees and give out incorrect information to employees regarding their entitlements. They put employees at risk by not providing adequate support and information to keep them safe in the workplace. Incompetent management who do not know relevent laws and acts applicable to the industry.
