A day in the life of a Personal Care Worker

Personal Care Workers help the residents living in our aged care homes live their day, their way. They are there to support them with their morning routines, their meals, and the activities of daily living. Due to how purposeful their work is, job satisfaction amongst Personal Care Workers is usually very high.

A typical day for a Personal Care Worker can include a range of jobs: personal grooming and hygiene, domestic duties such as housekeeping and laundry, and assisting the residents with social activities. Whether the resident wants to take a walk through the gardens, play a game of bingo, or simply sit and enjoy a cup of tea, you’ll always be there to provide a listening ear and a readiness to support them with whatever they need.
