AGED care worker Marie Wang says her job sat­is­fac­tion comes from a strong sense of be­long­ing.

She moved to Aus­tralia from Tai­wan in 2013 and has been with SwanCare since 2017.

“I think aged care work­ers all have a strong sense of be­long­ing, which can be de­rived from the time we spend with our clients,” she says.

“We spend plenty of time to­gether to com­mu­ni­cate and our clients are like our fam­ily mem­bers or friends.

“I’m happy at SwanCare – that’s why I’ve stayed here for the last three years.

“It feels good to know that, as a not-for-profit, our ef­forts di­rectly benefit our res­i­dents.

“And we have a re­ally sup­port­ive team – we all help each other, it’s un­spo­ken.”

Wang says the res­i­dents and their fam­i­lies ap­pre­ci­ate ev­ery­thing she and her col­leagues do.
