Life at Uniting AgeWell

Margaret's joy in home care

Uniting AgeWell home care worker, Margaret Bail loves learning about the Echuca area through the eyes of its older residents, who helped shape the beautiful Campaspe region into what it is today.

She particularly enjoys the snapshot of farm life she sees. “Some clients have been farmers all their lives,” she explains. “They love the land – and they’re so grateful for the care I provide, which enables them to continue to live well at home. They smile and say ‘thank you,’ and that makes my day!”

Margaret has only been with Uniting AgeWell for a short time, but already feels part and parcel of the Uniting AgeWell family.

They’re very supportive and friendly, and I like it that everyone is encouraged to learn and be the best that they can.

A heartfelt thank you

Every ‘thank you’ we receive is heart-warming. Some bring smiles to the faces of our caring staff. But when the home care team in Hobart received this email from client Roger Davidson, there were lumps in quite a few throats that simply would not go away.

And while Roger praised the whole team – carers and office staff – he singled out Personal Care Workers Denise Joss and Tracy Grimsey for special mention, referring to them as “family.”

To all the carers, I say thank you for your excellent service. Denise and Tracy are my family! Many other carers have taken care of me – there are too many to name, it would fill up this page ... they are all dedicated to their jobs.
