I was eager to go into work knowing that I was going to be busy.
The residents always greeted me, were genuinely happy to see me and that made me smile.

Every day I would learn something new,

everyone was keen to take the time to teach me something in a new area...we had a routine, we strived on working as a team in a clean and healthy environment and being organized made the kitchen run smoothly though out the day.


Hardest part of the job was being at work and having anxiety about the behaviour of my Autistic son Patrick.

I wanted to be there for him but i also didn't want to let my residents or team down.


Management i cant fault. Caring, understanding.

They always thanked me, encouraged and showed their appreciation.
Pros
Working with the elderly.
Cons
Experiencing first hand that we do get older, life is not forever.

no proper handover time to know what's happening in the previous shift , rushing to do your medications and treatment for clients.
That nurses are just a number management don't care.

Roster team does not know how to handle under staff while they hire all the time. replacing a permanent staff to cover up for another level given short notice and if they provide staff they less working hours. people on leave would not replaced with specific duties.

working with only 2 staff with 38 clients with specific needs,

your co-workers always work as a team.
Pros
Free coffee and biscuits
Cons
only 2 staff working in each floor

Typical day at work ,busy, varied duties, friendly residents, supportive staff.
Experience in ACFI Documentation and training and its importance to the facility and workers.

Management have a challenging job re extension of facility and increase in resident numbers.

Co-workers fantastic, great team work and support.

Hardest part of the job is time management when understaffed.

Most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction return from residents and their happiness!
Pros
cheap staff meals, salary sacrifice, great morningtea provided free!
Cons
when staff dont turn up for a shift, stressful!
