Maybe they do things differently in Oz, but all resumes I've seen have tended to list the various jobs the person has done, stating name of employer, period of employment and job title as a heading and then underneath listing what the job entailed. That would make it a bit more readable.

Once you've done that, pass it under the spellcheck. For instance, I'm sure you mean nursing home patients.

"making a positive contribution at a high level" is too vague

It might help to refer to any one of the "How to build a resume" type books available. They'll provide a visual representation of what Meirav described. It will also need more than just a spell-check. (The spell-check would suggest "patience" for "patience's", which would still be wrong, unless he/she is going for a Golum effect, in which case the original would be more appropriate.)
