We are a family owned and run business that treats all of its nurses as an extension of that family. Our local Brisbane call centre has been operating for over fifteen years and we have always been (and will be) aged care specific.

We surveyed our nurses to see what they thought of us. Here are some of the responses we received.

“Flexibility and variety in work. Excellent, friendly call centre. Always paid on time. Excellent support when/if things go wrong. Up-to-date training available. Good rates of pay. Enough work to be able to pay the rent, buy food, pay bills and have some left over to enjoy. What more could I ask for?”

“Their professionalism. The quality of the information that is made available for all staff. The atmosphere created gives an aura of family. The ability to listen to staff. The support given to staff.”

  • a minimum of 500 hours recent paid work experience in an aged care facility
  • your own vehicle or have close access to public transport
  • a current national police certificate (within the last 3 years)
