Part Time Disability Care Aged Care Cleaner Gardener

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.

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.

Work Opportunities Available:

We are looking for Helpers to provide support with Home Cleaning and/or Yard Maintenance to assist Members to remain living independently in their own homes. There are varying shifts available and start times are flexible.

To give a better idea of the day to day here are some recent examples

  • Watered the garden, cleared the leaves on the pathway and mowed the back yard for the Member.
  • Helped the Member clean out their garage and disposed of rubbish for them.
  • Drove the Member to their local nursery to choose which plants they wanted to add to their front yard.
  • Make the Member's bathroom sparkling clean. Put the dirty laundry into the washing machine, fold and then put away as per how the Member likes it.

We also have other opportunities available on the platform...

We set you up with a Helper profile where you can offer to provide a range of other home care services to Members. 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.

You may choose to offer more than cleaning services or yard maintenance..

  • Help a Member plan meals for the week and then cooked up some delicious and nutritious dinners they can heat up easily by themselves.
  • Go for a walk with the Member and their dog
  • Spend the day getting on top of a Member's outstanding home administration including paying bills, booking a doctors appointment or setting up their new TV.
  • Drive the Member to their weekly swimming lesson and then see a movie at the local cinema afterwards. Collect some groceries on the way home.

As you can see a Five Good Friends Helper role is diverse and dynamic. No day is the same. If this sounds like you, join us in creating a better brighter future for our Members. Be part of the revolution that is transforming the way people are cared for in Australia.
