Desley with her vast knowledge and experience in the aged care lifestyle community has inspired many to take that extra step to be their best when supporting aged care residents. She has mentored other employees in the lifestyle program, where they have become much more confident as Activity Officers at Carramar Aged Care.
Desley is selfless with her time and resources and always finds time to support other team members. She always has the resident’s best interests in mind when planning programs ensuring residents have lots of choices to lead full and flourishing lives.
Last year we held an Ekka Day for our residents. Desley organised baby farm animals, showbags, strawberry ice creams and fairy floss, just like the Ekka. We also had a craft stall where Desley had contributed a lot of her own work. Our residents were talking about it for weeks afterwards. This is only one of the special days that Desley has dedicated her time to.
