What our Care Workers and Nurses say

  • "Having worked both as a Care Worker and Registered Nurse for DD, I have always felt extremely supported when I am working autonomously with my Clients.  The team in the office are exceptionally friendly and helpful and never make you feel like you have asked a silly question.

    Sometimes it can be quite unnerving and challenging when you are caring for someone independently in the community, but the DD team never let you feel like you are alone.

    I moved to Australia one year ago, and have worked for other home care agencies – but, I have been my happiest and most secure in my work since joining the DD team.

  • “I enjoy working in the care industry because I know that every day I can make a difference. There are also lots of opportunities for self development and personal growth. I have been working in this industry for over a year and I chose Dutiful Daughters because they were recommended highly to me by a friend. Dutiful Daughters provide regular training opportunities which is a great career benefit and the office is based at a convenient central location. I have always felt extremely well supported by all the wonderful staff at Dutiful Daughters. It is very reassuring to know that a helping hand is never more than a phone call away.”

  • "I really enjoyed working with the team at DD. I have gained great experience and it's refreshing to work with such a supportive and professional agency. I can't speak highly enough of the company. As a Registered Nurse, working with DD has given me the opportunity to be a part of an experienced and dedicated team who are committed to providing top quality Client/Patient care. Working with DD has also given me the opportunity to work across a variety of home settings where the care is tailored to suit the needs of each individual in their own environment. I have found this incredibly rewarding and beneficial to my Nursing career.I am grateful to the DD team for their constant support and for the compassion they show to their staff. It's great to know that their professional advice is only a phone call away.”

  • "I have no intention of raving on and on about the First Aid Training Course last Thursday. All I want to say it was simply fabulous. I remember you telling me Frances Davidson was very good. What an understatement! What a fantastic presenter! I could have spent more than a day listening and watching her present. The thing I admired so much was the fact she is a realist and not affair to debunk many of the theories which have been around for some considerable time.”

  • "Dutiful Daughters is a company whose honesty and integrity are beyond reproach I am not only part of a team but also part of a family. I have been a member of the Dutiful Daughters team for 7 years and during this time have worked with staff that are caring, compassionate and above all committed to their Clients. I have been given the opportunity to increase my knowledge in the industry by attending the many and varied programs that Dutiful Daughters have sponsored  me to attend. The education I have received has helped me to not only do my work in a professional manner but it has also helped me to grow on a personal level and increased my understanding of the importance of support to the various communities that we live in. I enjoy working for Dutiful Daughters because I am improving not only the Clients quality of life but also helping to support the family as a unit. My job is special, I am proud that I can make a difference.”

  • “Many clients ask me why I am with Dutiful Daughters. I say 'because I appreciate their high standards and professionalism and the opportunities they have given me in extending my education'. Through Dutiful Daughters I was able to complete my certificate IV course in Disabilities and Community Services along with Home and Community Care in October 2012. I have attended ongoing classes such as Epilepsy training, Acquired Brain Injury, Mobility etc which enables me to be a better Care Worker. I also appreciate the help from the Care Coordinators and staff who have been very supportive. I find it very exciting to be invited into client's homes and see their various life styles and different cultural backgrounds. I feel with this work, that if you really care about people, and have the commitment and passion it is the most wonderful rewarding career to pursue. Even my husband has commented how much happier I am in this work.”

  • “I was working in an administration role as a secretary until my mother needed more assistance at home as she had been living with Alzheimer's for almost ten years.  I have one sibling, a brother who has a slight intellectual disability.  I was hoping to keep them both in the family home and felt that if I could work in community care I would have more flexibility around my work.  Initially when I started working in community care I missed the camaraderie of team work. I worked with other agencies and experienced different agencies through the care provided to my mother. When I joined DD I immediately felt part of a team.  If I receive positive feedback from those I care for the DD team always express their pride in my work.  They never make me to do any shifts if I don't feel confident in providing them.  The support from the team in the office is always so helpful, if I have concerns about a Client they offer guidance and are always available.I particularly enjoy working in aged care as I feel I can relate to the experiences of Clients and their families having had first hand experiences in situations with my family. Recently my brother had a minor stroke and I needed to place my mother in a nursing home. The best I can say was that they fed her and looked after her personal care needs, but there was no mental stimulation and I can see how important that is to people living with Dementia.  This recent experience reinforced my belief that in-home care is definitely the best option for our loved ones.”

  • “I chose a career in nursing as I wanted to make a difference in another persons life where they had been subjected to an illness/injury be it short term or long term. I arrived in Australia with 2 years nursing experience under my belt. I  applied for a job with Dutiful Daughters because it specialised in Community Nursing an area of nursing which appealed to me because I feel rehabilitation doesn't just stop when the Client is discharged home from the healthcare setting. Working with DD, allows me to help Clients regain their confidence and independence at home. Personally, I feel community nursing is very rewarding as I can see first hand how much it means to my Clients and and their family members to remain at home, be it during a time of recovery or spending their final hours in a familiar setting, the gratitude expressed by the Client/family at this time is merely priceless.”

  • “The education and training provided by DD around Stroke Awareness - was an inspiring, informative and informal training session which has brought stroke awareness to the front of my mind and gives me confidence in dealing with this situation if it ever arises. Thank you for organising.”
