What is your role?

Endorsed Enrolled Nurse at McPherson Smith Residential Care, Stawell

How long have you worked in aged care?

Two years

Why do you love working in aged care? 

I prefer aged care because you get to stay with the residents and do activities with them and talk with them

What relationships have you formed at work (with team or residents)? 

I have very good relationships with the residents. When I was on COVID leave they all missed me. We cry together and we laugh together.

What’s a memory you’d like to share from your time in aged care?

There was one particular resident who never liked me and she prefers the long term staff. One day when I was free I did something special for her happy hour activity and now she loves me.
