Homemaker/Cleaner (Residential Aged Care) – Bangalow


At Feros Care Villages, we are far from traditional in our delivery of care. We pride ourselves on meeting the needs of our residents, creating a caring environment full of spontaneity, fun and laughter for everyone to enjoy. You can look forward to pets roaming the corridors and laughter escaping from the common areas after dance lessons and graffiti sessions with the residents. After all – life is too short to not have FUN. We are looking for a kind, compassionate home maker who loves what they do and can appreciate that our 70 bed facility is truly a HOME to so many. Our facility is a high care facility, so please keep in mind the environment may be confronting and will require our homemakers to engage regularly with our residents, including assisting with feeding meals (after marked off as competent).  From 1 May 2020, it is a mandatory requirement from the Department of Health that an up to date flu vaccination is required for ALL persons to be able to enter Residential Aged Care Facilities.
