Meet Andrew – from Japara Anglesea Nursing Home
When Andrew’s dream career of working in the music industry as a famous DJ or Producer didn’t quite work out, he ventured down the path of a career that involved caring for others.
Initially beginning with adults with Autism, Andrew went on and studied a bachelor’s of Adult Nursing, and has been intrigued by Palliative and Dementia Care since then. “I’ve studied further into both these topics, because I believe that our residential aged care facilities need experts in these areas. It’s so vital that we’re able to provide the best possible care and services, by educated staff, who understand the intricacies of these situations” Andrew explains.
Andrew is looking forward to getting to know the residents, families and staff at Japara Anglesea Nursing Home. “I have worked at Japara Healthcare’s Balmoral Grove residence in Grovedale, so before coming to work at Anglesea, I already knew that I would be coming into a supportive, warm and fun culture” Andrew says. He can already see that the customer service and 24 hour registered nurses are what sets Anglesea apart from its competitors, and is excited about being able to provide the opportunity to upskill to staff, so Anglesea will be renowned for providing unbeatable aged care for residents and their families.
