At TPG Aged Care we know that our people are our greatest asset. Their intellectual capital, experience in the care industry and passion for what they do allow us to grow and achieve our vision: to become a leading community health care service provider focused on delivering the highest level of care.
Combined by our beliefs and united by purpose, it’s our professionalism, caring nature and reliability that allow us to promote independence, improve quality of life and help our care recipients to live supported in their own homes.
Our personal care and respite support workers hold a Certificate III in Individual Support or Aged Care and are chosen by us for their experience, ability and demeanor. We promote the principles of wellness, ablement and re-ablement and encourage our staff to constantly upgrade their skills through ongoing personal development.
As a minimum, all of our support workers hold a Provide First Aid Certificate and participate in annual mandatory OHS, manual handling, infection control and CPR training. And if a care recipient has specialised needs, our support workers are trained and experienced to manage their particular circumstance and are deemed competent by a Registered or Enrolled Nurse.
