What is RSL Life Care? Find out

Our origin is in providing care to those who served our communities and country, but our residents and clients come from all walks of life. We tailor our services to every individual at every life stage, understanding that people don’t just stop being themselves after retirement, and everyone has different needs, goals and desires.

That’s why we offer personalised lifestyle support solutions, champion people’s individuality and support them to live rewardingly through every stage of their journey. We are looking for people with similar values and ethics to join our team in providing this uncommon level of service.
We have a team of over 5,000 across NSW and the ACT, investing in our staff to develop their chosen career paths including providing scholarship opportunities, secondments, and many other development pathways.

Right now we need Home Care Workers to support our clients in their homes, and Registered Nurses and Carers at our residential aged care facilities across NSW and ACT.

Volunteers.

Along with many other aged care providers, we’re experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases, mainly the Omicron strain. Many of our staff in our residential aged care workforce have been impacted in some way, so we’re experiencing staff shortages at some of our Aged Care homes.

We are reaching out to ask available and able-bodied people to volunteer at locations in Greater Sydney including at Narrabeen, Galston, Penrith, Austral and Richmond, In addition, we are also looking for volunteers at our facilities in regional New South Wales – Wagga Wagga and Merimbula, as well as Canberra – Australian Capital Territory.

At this critical time, we would appreciate all and any support you can provide – whether it’s for a few days, a week or more over the coming weeks.

Current Roles

 

It is important to know that we have a very low number of COVID positive residents. The small number we have are isolated and you will not be expected to work directly with them. In most cases, all our COVID positive residents and staff have contracted COVID in community settings and not the workplace through working or living in our homes. Through the tremendous efforts of our staff, we have been successful in keeping our homes as safe as possible and to ensure this continues, we are seeking this extra support.

Staff Testimonials

Stories from our people

I enjoy listening to residents’ histories; their stay with us is such a small part of very long lives. As staff, we see them most days and so become part of each others lives. I often discover that many have achieved amazing things and I love listening to their stories.

I have studied and progressed within aged care from a Certificate 3 level to Enrolled Nurse and this year have commenced studies as a Registered Nurse. My future plan includes remaining within the Aged care Sector. I aspire one day to be Clinical Manager.

I was born and raised in the Philippines and took the opportunity given by my Auntie to study in Australia in 2010, after receiving my Nursing Registration back home. I enrolled in the Bachelor of Nursing – Graduate Entry at University of Western Sydney. Whilst studying, I worked for a casually as an AIN in Governor Phillip Manor and another aged care facility. When the opportunity arose I applied for the New Graduate Program at the RSL LifeCare. I have now been working with the RSL Lifecare for 5 years. I’ve been given the opportunity to enhance my skills, knowledge and experience and I have grown to be more passionate and dedicated to my work. I see the opportunity of progressing my career and profession within the RSL Lifecare organization.

I have to admit that I have adopted them as my extended family and therefore their needs are my priority. Like their families who have entrusted the care of their loved ones to us, I try to anticipate their needs and spend time with them. One of those things is having time to listen to their memories. I have learnt so much from them. Some of these people have raised large families in times of hardship especially during the Second World War. Some have suffered tragedies that I have only read about, these people have lived it.

Some have moved their families to a totally different country to give their children a better life away from the support of their extended families. We need to honor our elderly and I can’t imagine doing anything else other than what I am doing today.
