As a large not-for-profit organisation providkw16whid_0290ing aged care services in rural and remote NSW, we provide our people with an opportunity to make a significant contribution to their community. Our goal is to enrich the lives of older people and to do this we value every one of our staff and empower them to work in a supportive and collaborative manner to build an outstanding service. To achieve this, we partner with our clients’ families, local health services, dementia specialists, universities, organisations offering innovative programs around ageing, and our local communities.

Our people

It’s a special person who can really listen and provide care and support that will truly make a difference to older people’s lives. We invest a great deal in finding and developing carers, nurses, cooks, cleaners and many others who have the values and skills to provide the right experience for our clients. Having the right cultural mix for our clients and staff in all our communities is also important. Whiddon was the first aged care provider, for example, to collaborate with Replay, an organisation that supports Indigenous people to undertake training in aged care. As well as the serious side of care, we also like to have fun. We make sure that our wrinkles as the result of laughter and that there’s always time for a cuppa and a chat, both with our colleagues and our residents and clients. We have a fantastic employee wellbeing program, great ongoing education opportunities through our scholarship program, and events to recognise employee successes, such as our annual Gala Dinner.
