Autumn Aged Care provides a $600 per annum rebate to all staff following the 6 month probation period of employment. This is a reimbursement for costs incurred by the staff member for an activity or purchase that contributes to their personal health and wellbeing and will ultimately contribute to a positive working environment. Rebates will be made upon provision of a receipt and evidence of expenditure by the staff member as approved by management.

Examples include:

  • Gym membership or other similar physical exercise programs
  • Quit Smoking programs including patches and hypnotherapy sessions.
  • Weight Loss programs
  • Specialized work shoes

Targeted Re-conditioning

There are times that staff may lose some level of fitness and strength. To ensure staff can continue to work without putting themselves at risk, we work with them to get them back to their best. Staff who can benefit from re-conditioning are offered personal training to build strength and increase activity levels, this may include returning from an injury or illness.
