We are looking for part-time SUPPORT WORKERS to join a team to work with a 39-year-old male who lives in his own home. Support would include personal care, household tasks and positive behaviour support. 

Our customer responds best to people who are confident and self-assured but also able to help maintain a calm and reassuring home environment. He has a great sense of humour, loves being read to, rhythm and rhyme, swimming, riding his trike bike, watching TV and listening to music. He feels most secure when he has a clear routine supported by a familiar team of caring people.

Support will be provided in the customer’s newly built, home in Girrawheen. The home is modern and spacious and located in a charming street with parklands and community facilities nearby. The customer also has a housemate who will share the home but does not require any support.

  • Assist with daily personal care (including help with dressing, showering and assistance with personal hygiene).
  • Support community activities (including visiting family & friends, exploring the local area and keeping active with bike rides or walks around the park).
  • Help maintain the household with domestic assistance.
  • This position offers:

  • Hourly rate range from $27.82 – $28.69 per hour depending on qualifications, plus weekend rates
  • Superannuation benefits

  • A Mobile Phone for work use 
  • An opportunity to work in, or close to, your own local community in the Girrawheen and surrounding suburbs.
