Working at RSL LifeCare
RSL LifeCare is one of Australia’s largest aged care organisations.
We provide award-winning care to senior Australians, both veteran and non-veteran, in a range of settings from retirement living to in-home care to residential care homes. We offer specialised nursing such as dementia and palliative care, and pride ourselves on going beyond clinical care to measurable quality of life care for each of our residents.
RSL LifeCare employs over 3,000 staff across NSW and the ACT. We are an equal opportunity employer. We also invest in our staff to develop their chosen career paths including providing scholarship opportunities, secondments, and many other development pathways.
Working in Aged Care can be a wonderfully rewarding career path. Working at RSL LifeCare can provide you with opportunities to develop your career within a supportive environment.
I have grown up in Austral and it is so great to see my young children enjoy the things I did when I was young. Living and working in the Austral community is a blessing, surrounded my some amazing people.
I enjoy working for RSL LifeCare and love all of my residents. There is always a new story to tell, along with some great laughs. I love the fact that we can all come together when needed and help and support each other. It is like I have gained another family.
I really enjoy working at Chauvel Village Goonellabah. The residents here are such characters. It makes your day to come to work and see what will happen: they can be funny, they can be serious, they are all different, some tell jokes and some tell you too much at times, but each and every one of them have a soft and lovely side; you just want to give them a big hug. Working here I think has made me a better person, calmer, and more thoughtful, thanks to the residents.
I joined RSL LifeCare in 2013 at Remembrance Village, and so enjoyed working in our facility that I even asked my wife, Michelle, to work with us. I still remember both of us were deeply attracted by those fascinating photos around the building when we first started working here, and the atmosphere is so different comparing with any other aged care facilities we worked for.
I lived in Sydney for 5 years and completed my Bachelor of Nursing Course at the Australian Catholic University prior to moving to Wagga Wagga, and worked in another local nursing home for three years. I started as an RN with RSL LifeCare, and then trained to be a Peer Support & Assessor. I was also Care Manager here for two years which was an honor, but have since returned to the floor as a Registered Nurse as I found I missed the everyday “hands on” interaction with our residents.
