Job Description

Come and join Australia’s most innovative and dynamic home health organisation.

We're Five Good Friends and we're an approved aged care and registered NDIS service provider. We help our clients live vibrantly in their own homes by wrapping a care team around them and their families. Our software gently coordinates in the background so care teams can do their best work and our clients get exceptional outcomes.

Good people using friendly software is how we do care differently and the reason why we're invited back into the homes of our clients over 15,000 times a month. We began four years ago in QLD and today we provide services in NSW, VIC, and SA too.

We are growing every day and providing more home care to aged care and NDIS participants. We're looking for great care workers to partner with us to provide exceptional care and experiences that are personalised to the goals of the individual.

If you believe support for our loved ones needs to change, then please join us in creating a better, brighter, future by applying for our Helper/Community Support roles.

About the Members

We have two lovely Members located in Pullenvale on Brisbane's South-West seeking caring and compassionate Helpers to join their team. 

These Members are father and daughter who live together and are requiring extra care and support on a daily basis so they can continue to stay together as a family in their own home.

The father is an elderly Member who requires extra support with personal care. The daughter has a diagnosis of Down Syndrome and absolutely loves meeting new people! She requires extra support with personal care, keeping the house and yard tidy, companionship, and community access so she can venture out and meet her peers and participate in activities or day trips.

  • Domestic Assistance - e.g. cleaning, cooking, laundry, shopping
