At Afea, we empower our support workers through ongoing training, professional development and recognition. We make sure to celebrate those who go above and beyond for our clients!

For 2021, the Carer of the Year Award goes to Keith!

Our Care Coordinators, who nominate carers for our annual awards, give praise for Keith’s patience, kindness, generosity and extremely detailed care notes. His attention and diligence translates to amazing support for our clients, even during a year of exceptional challenges.

Learn more about Keith in this short interview.

When did you first join Afea’s team of support workers?

I joined Afea as a carer in December 2020.  

What led you to Afea?

I saw one of your job advertisements on a job website in October 2020. This is about three months after I moved to Sydney from the Hunter Valley where we’d been for 11 years.  

What is your proudest moment at Afea as a carer or support worker?

My proudest moment is seeing how one client has improved a great deal in certain areas when out in the community. This client has improved noticeably and it’s wonderful to see the individual increasing their independence and confidence.  

What’s your favourite thing about the company?

My favourite thing about the company is being given the opportunity to accompany clients to truly beautiful natural wonders. There are many that exist within the Sydney basin and I love being able to share them with the people I provide care for. I’ve been on many bush trails within the Hornsby Shire Council region, many of which are truly stunning and a joy to hike on.
