When she was just 15 years old, Angela decided she wanted to pursue a career where she could make a difference to older Australians. After her studies, she moved from Brisbane to Maryborough and joined the Yaralla Place team. She’s been a highly valued member of our community for more than two decades.
What do you love about your role?
It’s so uplifting to be able to care for these amazing residents. I try to bring laughter and energy to my role and to just make them happy. It really makes me feel good knowing I can make a positive impact every day.
How well do you get to know residents?
I absolutely love getting to know the residents because they’ve got such interesting stories and they’re all so different. I like asking about their special belongings, like photos or ornaments, in their suites. These spark so many conversations and memories and I can tell how much they love talking about them.
Why do you think Yaralla Place feels like home?
Yaralla is a friendly, warm community where residents feel comfortable and relaxed. It’s a happy place and I’m delighted to use my experience to care for these special people. Our team works together to make the residents happy, and it’s rewarding for all of us to be making this environment as home-like as possible.
