These are some of the stories from our talented and passionate BaptistCare team.
"I think the biggest thing I enjoy working for BaptistCare is the interaction you get with people. It's the little things like you meet someone for the first couple of visits at home and they have no idea who you are and you get to you get to know them and you get to learn their name and their history and the biggest kick you get is when someone who is an older person who doesn't get a lot of social interaction remembers your name for the first time."
"To work at BaptistCare. I just what it means to me is just like helping people be able to stay in their homes, still have the independence and just be able to enjoy their lives because we've only got one life and we want to be able to enjoy it until the very last moments well."
"I've been working for BaptistCare for five years now and ever since day one, I thought to myself, wow how rewarding and fulfilling is this job to meet fantastic people and also work with staff able to as a group interact with each other and you work as a team which is really a strong benefit to work for these clients that we have."
“I love working for older people. Since I started working at BaptistCare even from my previous experience, I realised our seniors do need a lot of supporting. Me being a clinician it's really important for the elderly because we need to understand not just about their physical health I also need to be able to support their daily activity daily living and that's something they need in daily life it's part of the services that we offer BaptistCare yeah.”
“I just love the elderly people I love their stories they tell you, i love looking after them in their own home I love the fact that they can stay in their home own home as long as possible that's where they've lived there for such a long time and anything that you can help them with that can let them stay there as long as possible the better is for them.”
“As somebody that has had a father that was quite unwell and BaptistCare did come and work for my dad, that's what brought me into it because I had such a high regard of BaptistCare that I wanted to work for BaptistCare you know, being able to help people and help their independence so that they can stay at home they really tell me how important it is to have us come and you feel needed and you feel appreciated like it's a rewarding job because you feel good about what you're doing and they thank you and you know they tell you I couldn't you know I couldn't be here without your help and yeah it's rewarding.”
“It's like going into a family's home. I just love the people. I love the atmosphere when I get there; they are always so welcoming and I get a great response.
I hope that when I get old, one day I'll have someone come into my home and, you know, take care of me the way that I see my colleagues and myself take care of our clients.”
