Caring is not just a job for Busselton’s Lallaine Dodd.
Hailing from the Philippines, Lallaine joined Capecare eight years ago as a Carer after moving to Western Australia. She said she loves the work and, watching her interact with our residents, it’s clear she takes a genuine interest in their needs.
“In my culture we really look after our elderly,” she said. “I really like caring, getting to know the residents and helping them is so rewarding.”
Capecare is helping Lallaine to progress in her aged care career. She has been working as a Team Leader for the past three years and has also gained experience in the Lifestyle Team and in medication competency.
“I’m also studying at TAFE at the moment, and am planning to do enrolled nursing,” Lallaine said.
“Capecare is actually helping me a lot in being flexible in my hours to allow me to work and study.”
When asked what she loves most about Capecare, Lallaine says: “the whole environment, it’s the whole aura in there, I love it”.
When asked if she would recommend Capecare to others, she laughs and says, “I already have! I’ve recommended it to a few people already and two of them are working with me now.”
Capecare supports people like Lallaine to pursue a career in Caring or Nursing. The organisation partners with South Regional TAFE to provide a fully supported 9-month traineeship program for students studying a Certificate III Individual Support (Ageing), who will then become part of their Care team for its residential facilities in Busselton and Dunsborough, and its community home care team. Your course fees will be covered, and you’ll be paid while you study and doing your practical training at Capecare. If you’re studying to be a Registered or Enrolled Nurse, Capecare also offers practical paid experience in Caring or Support Worker roles while you complete your training.
Capecare currently has opportunities in Caring and Hospitality (cleaning) in their residential teams across both Busselton and Dunsborough locations and Support Workers and Domestic Assistants in their community team.
