Get to know the team
At Estia Health you'll find some of the most welcoming, compassionate and experienced people dedicated to caring for residents. Working together, their diverse experience across a range of roles from clinicians to hospitality is what we believe makes our homes so special.
Our purpose is to enrich and celebrate life together and we feel privileged that in our role as caregivers we are able to support older Australians and their families at such an important time in their lives. Making the decision that you or a family member needs around-the-clock care can be a time filled with many emotions. We understand this and our experienced, compassionate and caring teams are focused on supporting every person who moves into our homes to feel settled, safe and comfortable, with the goal that it becomes a place they can call home.
Read on to hear about the experience and passions of some of our team and their important role in caring for residents and supporting families.
Highly trained teams
Every employee undertakes mandatory training and education when they first join Estia Health, regardless of their role. They will then take part in ongoing training and education tailored to specific roles as part of our continuous improvement culture. This is to make sure all members of the team have the understanding, skills and necessary education or qualifications to confidently care for residents in a safe and supportive environment.
Each home has a clinical care team, with Registered Nurses, a qualified professional caring role with a practice built on person-centred care who are rostered on duty 24/7, supported by Enrolled Nurses and carers. Our homes have an Infection Prevention and Control Nurse responsible for clinical education including dementia care, palliative care and medication management.
Our team is trained and educated in:
- Infection prevention and control
- Health and safety
- Clinical care education
- Food nutrition and fortification
- Safe lifting and moving
It is very difficult to relinquish the care of your parents to others and it is a great comfort to have confidence in the employees and home taking that responsibility. We can never thank you enough- Family member
