RDNS Silverchain

Barb Sherwood is a Domestic Assistance worker in our Aged Community Care team in South Australia. At 80 years old, Barb is unstoppable and as popular with her clients as she is with her colleagues.

Barb joined RDNS almost 20 years ago and has shown continued resilience, adaptability, and compassion towards her clients during her years of service. Barb is a diligent worker who takes an active interest in the clients in her care, putting her clients first and always ensuring client deterioration or concerns are promptly addressed.

Barb goes out of her way to support clients. An example of Barb going above and beyond was when a client was distressed about having had her letter box stolen. Barb comforted the client, went out to buy a new letter box and then installed this for her, all at her own cost.
