It is absolutely wonderful to see and use the combined efforts of so many of us caring for the elderly, from all over the world! This website has opened many doors to the world of the elderly, stimulating and enriching their lives and making it possible for us as Carers to bring joy and fulfillment. Thank you to Golden Carers for making all of this possible, we salute you!!
Wow I have never came in to work and had so many comments from this forum in one morning. Yes Yes Yes are job is very hard and truly we are the only ones who know this. When i am on holidays someone might fillin for some activities as there is always an excuse staff sick so there was no one but when they do it is only for the activity and they write down the names of those who have attended. So they do think the job is as easy as anything. Only we know how much work is done behind the scenes. If you belong to a larger company with other Villages meet with them. I organise for the RAO's and D/Ts at my company to get together once every second month it is fantastic the ideas we share are great!
Also look for the D/T Australia Assoc local meetings for your area, this is a way to talk to others not related to your company but area. I chair the local group in my area and its great we have an educational every month and talking to others always helps. If some of you are having great trouble with no office or computer try to get yourself a laptop use this at work but placing the forms you use on it and try try try to organise the activities for time that you can do the work needed at home. Write a letter to the chairman of the company and ask for a computer with internet access ( I did and i did not believe it but got it) I was lucky. The main thing is for us all to talk to others and share so we do not think where alone and knock the socks of the accreditors each time they come so WE STAND OUT!
