What Tall Trees Staff Do
Through our range of different staff positions we are able to provide totally comprehensive care to our residents. But what do we mean when we say “care”?
At Tall Trees…
Care is delivering nursing assistance of the highest quality to residents in a way that is personal and dignified.
Care is providing numerous options for residents to be active, to get out and socialise, and to have new and exciting experiences.
Care is lending a hand whenever residents need it, whether it’s tending to their plants, giving the floors a vacuum or hanging a painting.
Care is staying in touch, and giving a knock on the door to see how you are and offer a cuppa.
Care is understanding that everyone is different, and delivering individual results that reflect this.
Care is knowing the things that are important to our residents, while delivering on and exceeding expectations.
Training and Development
Through our unique Tall Trees Academy programme, training is provided in-house with internal and external experts in each field. Training and education at Tall Trees begins with a bespoke induction and orientation programme (delivered personally by Alan, Phil and Gae), including infection control, workplace and fire safety, food safety, a detailed review of our model and enough buddy shifts to ensure a thorough understanding of the new staff member’s exciting new role! Care competency education sessions regularly take place at our Communities including medication management, elder abuse, chemical awareness and more.
Ongoing learning and development opportunities continue throughout the year with many training sessions on offer for all staff. Probationary period assessments and yearly performance appraisals offer staff the opportunity to avail of additional training courses, depending on their individual needs and interests.
On top of all of this, at all times possible we offer traineeships and apprenticeships with the Australian Apprenticeship Centre. No matter what your needs or interests, at Tall Trees we aim to build knowledge and skill to ensure lifelong learning and on-going staff development.
