Aged Care Employee Day 2023

On this special occasion of Aged Care Employee Day, we celebrate Australia’s residential, home and community aged care workers. This year’s theme #ThanksForCaring recognises everyone involved in caring for older Australians. This year, we asked our wonderful Clinical Nurse, Blessy, to share her aged care journey and what working at Kewarra Aged Care means to her.

Why did you want to pursue a career in aged care?

There is a lot of stigma about living in an aged care home, where people think your life ends when you live there, a lot of people might think they are restricted or might not be able to enjoy life. I want to be part of the change, where they feel they are being supported and respected.

What is most challenging about working in aged care?

I think the hardest is saying goodbye, especially when you have looked after them for quite some time.

What do you like most about your role and working at Kewarra?

What I like the most about my role is being able to advocate for our residents. Getting to know them and creating a care plan outlining their preferences while preserving their individuality.
