In-home nursing and care support staff is very different from temporary staff in hospitals.
Staffing nurses and support personnel for in-home care is very different from placing temporary staff in hospitals. We don't send just anyone to fill a space. In addition to providing excellence in meeting clients' clinical needs, we respect their lifestyle and spiritual needs and are sensitive to their cultural backgrounds. Therefore, we endeavour to place a staff member whose personality matches the client and, if possible, has previously worked for them in order to minimise disruption to clients and their families and to maximise continuity.
We only recruit staff with experience and with the right values to meet our clients needs. Our consultants have backgrounds in health care (Registered Nurses, Enrolled Nurses, Assistants in Nursing and Personal Carers) and / or recruitment experience. All carers have up to date CPR and First Aid Certificates and are supported by a group of registered nurses and allied health professionals with experience in caring for the elderly and people with disabilities and illnesses.
Our Human Resource and Recruitment Team ensures that each carer candidate undergoes a comprehensive evaluation before joining our organisation. Our assessment, staff screening and selection process includes a one-on-one interview, reference checks, police checks, working-with-children checks, verbal reference checking with supervisors, induction/orientation programs, and on-going evaluation to ensure their standard of care remains high whilst they are employed through Kinder Caring.
Each member of staff must complete Orientation Training
and is encouraged to attend other courses we hold in-house. We conduct
regular performance reviews and offer training and
government approved traineeships to our care team where appropriate.
To ensure our clients privacy is protected all our staff sign a Confidentiality Agreement and Privacy Statement at commencement of employment.
