About Bolton Clarke - The new face of RSL Care & RDNS.
  
Bolton Clarke is one of the largest Australian owned and operated not-for-profit healthcare service providers. For over 200 years, we have been delivering services designed to keep people connected in the community and living independently in the place they call home for as long as possible.

From a single nurse walking the streets of Melbourne to our first veterans hostel in Brisbane, our tradition of care and history of service continue to inspire and guide our work. Our long held values of compassion and respect remain at the heart of everything we do.
  
Today, Bolton Clarke offers more services to support more people across home care, retirement living and residential aged around Australia and enables our customers to live their best life possible.

All employees may be required to attend a Residential Aged Care facility as part of their role. From 1 May 2020 this means that employees must be vaccinated against influenza or complete the Bolton Clarke intention to get the Influenza vaccination prior to commencement.
