Stories from our people
I enjoy listening to residents’ histories; their stay with us is such a small part of very long lives. As staff, we see them most days and so become part of each others lives. I often discover that many have achieved amazing things and I love listening to their stories.
I have studied and progressed within aged care from a Certificate 3 level to Enrolled Nurse and this year have commenced studies as a Registered Nurse. My future plan includes remaining within the Aged care Sector. I aspire one day to be Clinical Manager.
I was born and raised in the Philippines and took the opportunity given by my Auntie to study in Australia in 2010, after receiving my Nursing Registration back home. I enrolled in the Bachelor of Nursing – Graduate Entry at University of Western Sydney. Whilst studying, I worked for a casually as an AIN in Governor Phillip Manor and another aged care facility. When the opportunity arose I applied for the New Graduate Program at the RSL LifeCare. I have now been working with the RSL Lifecare for 5 years. I’ve been given the opportunity to enhance my skills, knowledge and experience and I have grown to be more passionate and dedicated to my work. I see the opportunity of progressing my career and profession within the RSL Lifecare organization.
I have to admit that I have adopted them as my extended family and therefore their needs are my priority. Like their families who have entrusted the care of their loved ones to us, I try to anticipate their needs and spend time with them. One of those things is having time to listen to their memories. I have learnt so much from them. Some of these people have raised large families in times of hardship especially during the Second World War. Some have suffered tragedies that I have only read about, these people have lived it.
Some have moved their families to a totally different country to give their children a better life away from the support of their extended families. We need to honor our elderly and I can’t imagine doing anything else other than what I am doing today.
