Is working in aged care right for me?

Only you can answer that question. But we can share that aged care is a fast growing industry with lots of opportunities to learn and develop professionally. So the industry may be a perfect place to start and develop your career in physiotherapy or allied health. Aged care is also very flexible and diverse. You may work in a variety of aged care facilities and across the community, and work in multidisciplinary teams. Working with the elderly is hugely rewarding. A good way to find out if the industry is right for you, is to apply for a student placement while you are still studying.

Can I delay my start date?

Yes! If you are planning to travel or just take a well-earned break after graduation, we will delay your start date to suit you. Beginning your career is a big deal, so we understand if you want some R&R before you join the team.
