Lauren was born to work in the Life Style Team within an Aged Care Facility. From a young age Lauren accompanied her mother Aida to events in Residential Facilities bringing smiles and joy as a child, through her teenage years and then through work experience and then as a volunteer in her own right. Lauren successfully transitioned from volunteer through to fulltime employee after successfully completing the relevant studies. While her skill level has developed and changed, her positive and energetic presence has been a constant to all those she has come into contact with. Now through her role she supports residents to achieve their goals, maintain or regain their level of function and definitely elevates the wellbeing of those around her. Thank you Lauren and thank you Aida for showing Lauren the pathway to our industry and having such an impact on people’s lives.
