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 job
We set you up with a Helper profile where you can offer to provide a ranged of home care services to Members including domestic assistance, personal care, companionship, driving and community access and home administration.
As an independent contractor you will receive opportunities via the our App for matches with Members who have varying support needs. Visits may range from 1hr to 24hours depending on the needs of the Member.
To give a better idea of the day to day here are some recent examples:
- Helped a Member plan meals for the week and then cooked up some delicious and nutritious dinners they can heat up easily by themselves.
- Drove the Member to his weekly swimming lesson and then went to see a movie at the local cinema. Collected some grocery shopping on the way home.
- Supported a Member to get ready for the day with a morning shower, getting dressed and helping style her hair and makeup.
- Made the Member's bathroom sparkling clean. Put the dirty laundry into the washing machine, folded and then put away as per how the Member likes it.
- Prompted the Member to take their medication and checked all scripts were up to date.
