How to Be a Carer

How to Be a Carer

How to be a Carer (By Garry Eggleton)

As a parent of a wheelchair user who receives services under the NDIS I’m often asked about the people who provide the services, what they do, and how people can get into the field.

Many people are looking at the worker opportunities in the field with the NDIS rollout taking on full speed as more workers are needed and needed now.

The NDIS will see a greater number of Australians given assistance in their daily lives and will require a larger and more flexible workforce in the field.

The NDIS will see many more people given support in their homes so workers are needed in all areas.

The great thing about being a carer or supporter for a person with a disability is the satisfaction of knowing you have made someone’s day a little better, I myself started working as a carer (one day a week 5 hours) for a mature wheelchair user who lived with his mother and wanted to have a guy his age to talk too, I would pick him up in the van and we would get a coffee and head to a park (if not raining) and sit and chat about many things from deep talks about world events to where to get the best cheese cake.

I know the experience is something I enjoyed and I feel it added to my growth as a person.

People needing personal care under the NDIS will range from people needing 24 hour support with personal care, bathroom, feeding etc to people just needing a small hand with shopping, cleaning etc.

The NDIS will need workers to cover many roles from highly trained Doctors to entry level roles assisting with general day to day needs.

The question I get asked mostly is if I have not worked in the field before where can I get some experience or training and what do I need to work with clients?

  • Join the Professional Practice Academy’s (PPA) certification pathway or try our Attributional Tool to explore your suitability for the role

  • Connect with the PPA community

  • Work as a volunteer, the PPA has partnered with organisations such as Aftercare who are one of Australia’s leading mental health NGO’s.

  • You will need a working with children check for the state you are working in (in NSW the form is filled out online with a small cost),

  • The group or service provider you volunteer for will need to do a background criminal check to make sure you are a fit person to work in the field,

  • Most will need you to have Current First Aid training,

  • Driver’s License & Car will also help as public transport is not always suitable,

  • Before starting a must is the knowledge of both worker & client safety and infection control standards.

And have the following qualities,

  • Be On Time & have a good Work Ethic,

  • Be well rested before you start, show energy & effort,

  • Have Passion and a can do attitude for the role,

  • Be coachable and willing to learn each day.
