Excellence In At Home Support Careers
Brooke Searles and Julieann Dickson have both started their careers in aged care with the tight knit At Home Support Services team servicing the Rockhampton, Gladstone and Yeppoon region of Queensland.
The pair have been working with the team since June and have taken a real shine to the industry and are keen to pursue their interest in health, wellness and improving the lives of others.
Brooke has a true passion and commitment to healthcare completing a Certificate III in aged care through a school based traineeship plus additional first aid, CPR, manual handling and mental health training.
“I really enjoy helping others and aged care is a great industry to work in as I want to pursue a career in nursing. I am learning how to care for my clients with different behaviours and learn their individual preferences,” Brooke said.
“The team has been very supportive and helpful while the clients are lovely. I have already received good feedback from them and it’s very rewarding to hear.
“Aged care is an extremely rewarding career to practice; you learn more every day while making a difference to people’s lives. If you’re a caring person who enjoys having responsibility, then aged care is a great occupation to follow.”
