Providing opportunities for career development

When she joined KinCare in December 2017, Margaret was looking for a chance to grow her career in the aged care sector. Since then, she has made the most of the opportunities she has been given to challenge herself, learn new skills and step up into a new role.

How times flies when you love your work

When Astrid started in community and aged care in 1995, she was motivated to find a role that would work around her three school-aged children. Today, 25 years on, she’s one of KinCare’s longest serving Home Care Workers. We spoke to her about what she loves about her role.

Personal experience leads to rewarding career change

After almost 20 years in the legal sector, Megan made the bold switch to aged care with a role at KinCare. Having connected with KinCare several years earlier while caring for her grandmother, she couldn’t be happier with her career change.

Supporting Carers to take a break

Caring for a loved one can be rewarding, but exhausting. As the holidays approach, some planned respite can give you that much-needed time to tackle your long to-do list – whilst knowing your loved one is in capable hands.

How to be social this Christmas while staying safe

Christmas is a time for being together with family and friends. While this year’s celebrations might look a little different, there are ways to enjoy the festive season safely. We asked some experts, including Dr Kirsty Short, a specialist in infectious diseases at the University of Queensland and occupational health practitioner Anita Patturajan, for their tips on staying safe this Christmas.

Stories and memories

Our Customer Sent has had an amazing life. Born in the Netherlands, he came to Australia at just 19-years-old with nothing more than an empty suitcase and the clothes on his back. With vivid memories of his childhood, time in the war and travelling to Australia, Sent was one of the first Customers we encouraged to create a Life Story Memory Book through our Virtual Connections service.

Managing Christmas and Dementia at home

By modifying some of your traditions in simple ways you can create a beautiful Christmas experience for your loved one, friends and family.

Supporting our team to grow with us

Career growth is one of the top priorities applicants look for in a job. It’s certainly a reason our new Junior Customer Care Managers, Lucy and Prue, were attracted to KinCare.

Teamwork makes all the difference

After a stay in hospital, all our Customer Joan wanted was to return to her beloved home. She had missed the care and friendship provided by her family and team of KinCare Home Care Workers. Joan’s family credits KinCare’s Home Care Workers with lifting their mother’s spirits and supporting her back to good health.

A life well-travelled helping others

Our Customer Dr Antony Radford has had a colourful medical career. He met Prince Charles and Mother Theresa, held a medical clinic on the Amazon River, taught Burmese students on the run from the militia, worked among refugees on the Thai-Cambodia border, and published two books!
