We are currently looking for compassionate, professional and reliable Registered Nurses with Critical Care experience, to join our team. If you are as passionate and committed as we are, you will be the perfect candidate to help support one of our loved clients located in Drouin, a charming town in the West Gippsland region, 106 kilometres east of Melbourne. You will be responsible for providing support with our client’s day to day living and for enriching her and her family’s lives through the contribution you make as a Colbrow Care employee.
Our client is 34 years of age with a high level of complex care needs including a ventilator plus tracheotomy, along with other medical and disability care requirements. This is a 24/7 active 2:1 program and our client is completely reliant on her care team.
Our client has many interests and keeps herself busy with cooking, she loves craft (making cards), enjoys building Lego, loves gardening & spending time outside, watching movies, and she enjoys books being read to her.
Our client has a companion dog so applicants MUST LOVE DOGS. In addition, and due to the client’s health issues, non-smokers are preferred. To gain a better understanding of our clients needs please refer to the link for her return to home story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FShM71Z3JQ

Full training and buddy shifts are provided to all staff joining the care program.
