Join Care Forward
An introduction from the Managing Director
The in-home aged care industry is facing unprecedented challenges. By 2030, the number of elderly people will exceed the number of children for the first time in history. That means there has never been a greater need for in-home aged care services to ensure our elderly seniors receive quality care and support Care Forward is committed to being at the forefront of this challenge.
Do you want to truly make a difference in people's lives? Working in aged care is as rewarding as it is demanding, both physically and emotionally. That's why we need to prioritise staff well-being, wellness, health, support, and flexibility are just some of the ways in which we need to become better and better at looking after our own staff.
If we're gonna last the distance, yes, paying our people more certainly above the award is absolutely something that Care Forward is committed to, but it's more than that. It's got to be more than that.
How can we ensure that we are providing the best care possible? We've got to have our own house in order first. We've got to have our own house, our own home in order. And that means making sure that our own staff are supported and motivated to give their very best to their vital work. We can't only invest in our clients. We need to invest in our own development and advancement too. That includes providing our staff opportunities for personal and professional growth.
It also includes a positive work environment that creates a culture of continual learning. You may or may not already work in this industry. You may or may not already be a care and health provider. You may or may not already know about Care Forward. And our passion, our challenge, our opportunity, please consider making the move to Care Forward. We need all the help we can get. We're not perfect. Of course we're not, but we're honest. We're honest about our need to do better. Always. We need to improve. Of course we do. We've got a long way to go. Absolutely.
We want the good to become better and the better best, but we need your help. We're stretched and punching well above our weight. We're juggling and wearing so many hats we can all only do our very best. The rest is up to the collective and the magic of momentum. And that's both terrifying and exciting because it means that I can't do it alone, no matter how hard or how smart I work. And neither can you, and neither can the management or the frontline staff. Neither can the board or the direct care staff alone nor the administrators or the health professionals, nor the executives or the home care assistants. No, we can't do it alone. Only the whole organism, each cell and organ doing its work together at the same time in unison, can gain momentum and move forward.
What's it gonna take for us to see senior Tasmanians reaching the highest level of independence in the country? That's our big, hairy, audacious goal. It's going to take all of us joining together, united by this one purpose, this one common goal, and working in harmony like a colony of bees creating honey rather than a troupe of chimpanzees creating havoc. Care Forward is on a five-year road trip of change and transformation. But a hive is only healthy if the whole community is humming. Each individual needs to stay focused on solutions and progress, and that's when the magic starts to happen. That's the momentum that Care Forward is building.
But don't just take my word for it. Ask around. Ask your GP or health professional. Ask those that you know best, who you trust. The proof is in the providing.
