Working in aged care is definitely a varied career whose challenges differ day to day with no day ever the same. For those looking to learn more about working in aged care we’ve asked our head trainer Chris Whymark to give incite on what exactly an aged carer does in their day to day role:

“Working in Aged care can be a very satisfying job, as we are privileged to care for our most senior people in our communities. It’s an extremely rewarding and fulfilling career.”

“As aged care workers it’s our honour to deliver our services to these people either within Home and Community care or in an Aged Care facilities, where we complete a number of duties which include, helping with daily living, providing personal care, arranging and supervising activities, enhancing physical and emotional wellbeing”.

“Knowing how to make someone feel well cared for is key to making sure our residents/clients are happy and settled with the services we provide”.
