In 2017 I decided to take up the opportunity as Auckland Regional Service Coordinator for Custom Care Nursing’s Return to Independence Clients. Since joining CCN I have learnt different strategies to ensure my team is working efficiently and within the company policies and procedures, including meeting new Clients and Support Workers, participating in the Client’s meetings and cares, and team building at Head Office.
I love working in the healthcare industry because I enjoy making differences in people’s life’s. I like ensuring my Clients needs are met and seeing a smile on their faces when I leave their homes.
In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, gardening, spending time with family and friends and watching movies on Netflix.
I really enjoy working with clients with complex cares, maximising their independence and with clients who need assistance to return to independence.
I have worked as a support worker for Custom Care Nursing and now moving to Regional Service Coordinator role. I am totally enjoying the diversity of the role and meeting new clients.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, being with my grandchildren, gardening and horse riding.
What I like about working in the Healthcare Sector is knowing that your contribution can have a positive impact on someone’s health, wellbeing and quality of life. I’m all about empowering people and making people feel good.
In my spare time I enjoy strength training at the gym and spending time with friends and family.
I enjoy working and helping people recover from their injury and ensuring that they get all the help and assistance they require to make a full recovery. I like meeting different people from all walks of life and listening to their stories as they progress through their recovery.
Some of the Clients struggle at the start, trying to maintain their independence, and they are so grateful for the assistance that we can provide to take the some of the burden off them. They welcome the support of their SW when they arrive at their home to assist their recovery.
It is so rewarding to get such positive feedback from Clients as to the wonderful staff that have supported them through difficult times back to independence. They say that they could have done it without their support.
For my down time, I bred and show dogs. I enjoy competing in dog shows with my dogs, and I travel around the county to the dog shows. I have a large section, and I potter in the garden when time and weather permits. The dogs love to assist by removing plants that I have put in. When I am not looking of course.
I am excited to take on new challenges and being able to contribute to people in need within my role at Custom Care Nursing. I have watched whanau in the healthcare industry be passionate about their careers and I want to be part of that culture and continue the good work of providing care and support.
In my spare time, I love reading a good book or taking my children out on new adventures.
