Goodwin goes ‘country’ with home care


Do you have friends or family in Murrumbateman/Yass or Bungendore/Braidwood areas?

Goodwin is expanding in-home care services into these areas from January 2018.

“It’s an area where there’s a real need, and people who have been devoted to their acreage or property for many many years,” said Jamie Fillingham, Executive Manager Community Care for Goodwin.

“It will be a great service if we can empower country people to stay independent at home, in ways that best suit them.”

Services will be provided under the federal Government’s home care packages scheme, which offers subsidised care for those assessed as eligible. Services can include transport, domestic help, personal care, medication assistance, help with shopping, home and garden maintenance, and mobility aids among other things.

We’re seeking expressions of interest from workers in regional NSW!

To support our new home care services, Goodwin is also seeking expressions of interest for carers who live in Queanbeyan, Bungendore, Braidwood, Murrumbateman and Yass areas.

We understand that local service is important to local people, so we want carers who are based in the community they serve.

This is a rare opportunity to work close to home of you live our region’s country towns. It’s ideal for parents with children in country schools, those who’ve retired and wish to work part-time, or those looking for flexible hours.

To express interest and for details on eligibility and training, visit the careers area of our website or email Goodwin’s People and Culture team through recruitment@goodwin.org.au.

Help us by spreading the word!
