MARIE’S AT HOME
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.
