Training

Staff undergo training across a variety of aged care information and practices, including how to put on pressure stockings using aids such as a donner.

 

Jubilee Community Care is committed to providing our staff with an excellent and diverse training program. It is mandatory for all employees and volunteers to attend a two-day training program each year to attain a minimum standard of knowledge, skills and competency.

Each year this training includes Manual Handling & Workplace Health and Safety; Fire safety; Infection control; and Medication management training. Also covered each year are a variety of topics relevant to the industry and of importance to our clients and staff.
