Aged Care

An aged care nurse is responsible for the health and wellbeing of Australia’s elderly population, who are no longer capable of caring for themselves. In that sense, aged care nurses have the challenging task of caring for a population with its own set of complex needs that require a skilled health care workforce to look after.

Being an aged care nurse is a demanding job that involves a wide variety of tasks and responsibilities. With the growing population, the demand for aged care nurses is on the rise, making it a secure career choice for the aspiring nurse.

QualityCare Nursing has been providing aged care nurses to care facilities, hospitals as well as patients’ homes for over 15 years. Our nurses are professionally trained, experienced and have the right work ethic to deliver the standard of service our senior citizens deserve.

Duties and responsibilities

Aged care nurses can be based out of home, an aged-care facility or within a range of health care settings. Regardless of where they work, the duties of aged care nurses will typically include:

  • Assisting with meal consumption
  • Assistance in the bathroom
  • Changing bed sheets and clothing
