When did you first join Afea and in what role?
I joined Afea in June 2021 as a Care Manager and Registered Nurse.
What led you to Afea?
The moment I heard about this role, I was thrilled to get the chance to learn something new and utilise the nursing skills that I have. I just knew that this was a great organisation to help myself grow both personally and professionally.
What do you do in your new role as Afea’s Community Nurse and Trainer?
I train support workers both on-site or virtually on medication management, manual handling, PEG feeding and pressure area care for complex care clients. The carers and I liaise with the services team and help our clients achieve their desired goals. I can be flexible for clients and train carers whenever I’m needed. I never stopped doing it even during the lockdown in this pandemic!
As Afea’s Community Nurse and Trainer, what are you hoping to achieve in the future?
To maximise the numbers of carers and help achieve as many trainings as possible. Regular training helps carers build their confidence to provide support for clients with needs at any level of complexity.
What’s your favourite thing about the company?
Since Day 1, I am astounded with Afea’s great teamwork and healthy and extremely welcoming work environment. I appreciate the positive and constructive feedback from the team that I work with.
What is your proudest moment at Afea?
I feel immensely proud to share the nursing skills that I have and empower others with my expertise.
I am able to help train the carers, regularly or during times when they are in urgent need of nursing support.
