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.
Through my role I was able to provide training for new carers in their client homes. I also assist with the training of new carers at our Quality Personal Care Workshops. I have completed my Certificate IV in Disability, attended Cultural Awareness training and completed a course in OH & S Consultation.
I currently have a new role at ParaQuad NSW as a Transitional Accommodation Supervisor. This has been a great opportunity for me to gain experience and knowledge in the accommodation side of ParaQuad. I love my job!
