I have been a carer for 23 years. My first experience came about when I started nursing with the aged and frail at Fairfield Nursing Home, at the age of 20. I stayed there for 15 wonderful years, until I decided to apply for a position to provide care to clients living in their own homes. I have had the opportunity to care for clients with various disabilities over the last 8 years.
I have worked for ParaQuad NSW for the past 4 years now. This time has been of great importance to me. I have gained an enormous amount of experience, understanding and education in this field of work. Initially I was a carer and then I was given the opportunity to become an onsite trainer.
