About Nursing

They say respect your elders, but have you considered caring for them? One way to show your respect is to choose a rewarding career in aged care and nursing. An aged care qualification can lead you to roles in residential care and other aged care facilities, or caring for the elderly in their homes. You will work with people who have a range of needs and provide an invaluable service to those who need extra help and support.

Working in aged care involves helping older persons with day-to-day tasks such as cleaning, cooking and laundry, as well as personal care such as dressing, bathing and grooming. Carers can also offer 24-hour nursing care to residents and help provide peace of mind to their patients’ families and friends.

You can choose a role in aged care assisting those who are able to live at home but still require some support. This assistance can include personal care, domestic help, transport, staying physically active and health support. You will also be able to assess potential risks in the home environment and help reduce the chance of falls and accidents. An aged care course will teach you to support the interests, rights and needs of those you care for within duty of care requirements.
