For 75 years we have been supporting older people in their homes. We’re different because of our Christian values, our compassionate approach to all aspects of care and our team of qualified clinical and allied health aged care specialists.
We feel grateful when clients allow us into their homes to provide care and support. We have a rigorous recruitment procedure because we understand how important it is to send the right people into your home.
We take great care in matching the right support staff with you and your interests as part of your Care Plan. This process takes into account such aspects as cultural background, preferred language, gender of the support staff, common interests and the complexity of the care you may need.
Meet some of our staff:
Rachael, Care Adviser
“I really get a thrill about making people’s wishes come true. If I can make sure that they have people coming in to the home regularly and checking in to see if they are doing well, and have the right connections to doctors and other support, then that’s what makes me happy at the end of the day.”
Katalin Kavanagh, Care Worker
“Working in aged care gives me a deep feeling of satisfaction, knowing that I’m doing something I’m good at and giving back in a small way to the community. It’s hard work but it doesn’t feel like a job. It’s living life and serving others, what is better than that?”
Bei-ting Guo, Care Worker
“I love this job. I have been with Anglicare for nearly 8 years. This is a meaningful job. When someone says “you are my daughter", or “you are an important person in my life” I feel care workers make the world a better place. That feeling is the best thing.”
Valli Kilby, Lifestyle Carer
“A Lifestyle Carer is a person who works with people over 65 who attend our Social and Wellness Centres. Some of the activities I run include arts, crafts, light physical exercise, games, all sorts of activities. We try to make it different each day. I might spend some time in the office making phone calls to people who need social contact and are unable to come to the centre. It’s a wonderful job because you get to see the changes it brings to people’s lives.”
