I joined Southern Cross Care as a Graduate six months ago, having completed my OT studies at UniSA last year.
The team at Phillip Kennedy have been so welcoming and helpful to me as a newcomer.
I’ve greatly enjoyed the variety of work I’ve experienced so far – much more diversity than I expected this early in my career.
Though I started with community work, I’ve already run small groups and been exposed to residential work.
Aged care is great because you can build rapport with older people and get to know them and their lives.
They respect us because we’re trying to help them regain and maintain their independence, which is so important to them.
I like social sport, shopping, socialising and gym.
At SCC, we take a very positive role in the lives of older people and see really good outcomes.
