Caregiver | Cairns QLD | 12 Jan 2020
Good place to work with nice care and respect for the elderly residing there.
I had a good time there gaining personal carer hands on experience, while understanding and experiencing the indigenous culture as well. The care given was extremely professional and the slightest issue was addressed in a short time. The staff gets updated on the residents in the handover, and the changes are updated in their system as well.

One big caring family
Blue Care is made great by its people. The people at Blue Care really do care about others and each other. I worked here in various roles for fourteen years. I guess I stayed so long because I felt at home here.

Great team of Allied Health Professionals
I work alongside a great fun bunch of men & women who make the workplace an enjoyable place to be. We all love being a part of the community in helping the aged to manage well enough & fit enough to be in their comfort of their own home with their loved ones.

Community Assistant | Maroochydore QLD | 26 Mar 2014
Can be fun but stressful. Lots to learn in the Blue Care way
Very busy organising staff. I deal Alot with the Clients(dementia Specific) and their Carer's. I put programms in to place. Coordinate the day to day running of the CBDC I coordinate the In home services I do most of the ordering for CBDC Plan meetings Hardest part of my job is dealing with the Carer's when they have lost a loved one or their loved one is no longer suitable to attend CBDC. Best part of my job is knowing that we are all making a difference in our clients and carer's lives. Helping them remain in their own homes and to see that smile on their face. It's priceless
ProsGreat Management. Further education available if needed or wanted. Very structured
ConsI would love to be able to work 5 days a week instead of 4.

Questions And Answers about Blue Care

Why do/did you like working at Blue Care?
Asked 6 Mar 2017
I loved my job as a Community Registered Nurse with Blue Care, I had great managers in Brisbane's South Side, then I was offered a job at Elanora, there was a great team spirit but an awful manager, I believe she was sacked for bullying! Not soon enough in my experience with her! Otherwise I would still be working there.

Blue Care they very good in introducing quality care to residents.
Answered 23 Oct 2019
Is it possible to get a 38/40 hour working week
Asked 25 Sep 2018
Depends on how flexible you are and who you know, the culture of Blue Care today is towards casuals as they are easier to manipulate and they do not have to commit any type of loyalty as far as hours or time frames to them. You will get no hours one week, a few hours another and then won't have time to breath in yet another. No consistency unless you are privilaged or know someone. It's even hard to get part time positions now.
Answered 9 Dec 2019
Very difficult. No consistency if service with so many part timers. Meant often doing work in own time, unpaid.
