Meet Home Care Support Worker Tammy

Tammy moved into community care with Anglicare Tasmania two years ago and says she has never had any regrets.

“Having the time to spend with my clients, on-to-one is wonderful,” she said. “Seeing them happy and comfortable in their own homes is very rewarding.  They tell me how much they look forward to seeing me next time.  Several of them still bake and they offer to send what they’ve made home with me and this makes me feel appreciated.  And they’ve led such interesting lives! One of my clients is 83 and has a craft stall at the Penguin Market.  I encourage her to keep doing this as long as she can.”

Tammy loves the North West Coast and can’t imagine living anywhere else.  She has around 15 regular clients who live in an area spanning Railton and Penguin.  She usually visits between two and six people a day, supporting them with personal care, household tasks and grocery shopping. “Sometimes simply getting out of the house and having a coffee or doing some shopping is what they need”, she said.

Meet Home Care Support Worker Nerissa

Nerissa Mitchell made the switch from residential aged care to community support when she joined Anglicare. She loves giving her clients the time they need and supporting them to achieve their goals.

What brought you to Anglicare?

“I have been with Anglicare for four years. Before that I was working in residential aged care and thought I would try something different. I decided to give community support a go. I’m so glad I did as I love it. Being able to have quality one-to-one time with my clients is very special and makes such a big difference.”
