Meet Jay Richters, Together We Care Founder
Founder, Jay Richters, has a burning desire to provide a brand new, flexible and sustainable model of care where all parties flourish.
Being an ex-cabin manager in the airlines, Jay has always had a passion for working with people. One day he had an explosive rupture of his ear drum while at work and his dream career was over.
He packed his bags and embarked on a journey down to South Australia where he completed not 1 but 3 trainings in the community aging and care sector all within 6 months and all while working full time.
He quickly shot up the ranks and became involved in high level case management and care coordination for a non- profit.
Tired of the South Australian weather he returned to Brisbane where he was quickly employed by the largest employer second to the State Government. While he had wins in that role, he became so disillusioned by the way the business was being run and the massive challenges the organisation faced due to its incredible size. Change did not occur fast enough, and he felt like he was stuck in a time warp.
After moving on he secured another management role for a new progressive and modern not for profit where he felt his skills would be of benefit and he could go out and make a real impact in his client lives. After just 9 months he grew the business from the ground up, in the Northside of Brisbane. He had 275 clients, 16 staff and running multiple different programs. He thought he had it made and was in line for career progression.
Then one day the State Manager of Care came into his office and asked his to forge visits in the system as they had not spent all the government funding and they were applying for more.
This broke Jay, and he decided after a few weeks of stress leave there was no way he could work for such dishonest people.
He walked out of his job and half the staff and clients followed him. They saw his passion and dedication to making a change and knew that he was going to create great things. This is how Together We Care was born.
Together We Care is all about creating win-wins for all those who work and receive care.
