Alec managed the design and implementation of Chronic Disease Management programs for an international pharmaceutical company which helped people with ongoing conditions to self manage their care and prevent them from getting worse. This ignited and subsequently grew his passion for the healthcare field and working to make a difference in people’s lives. His own parents and parents-in-law are now in retirement and needing supplementary in home care. His father, in pursuit of his own purpose in retirement, has qualified as a PCA and provides in-home care to other elderly. Having personally grappled with the challenges of ageing parents, the desires to live at home with meaning and purpose, Alec wants to directly help others through these uncharted waters to make a true difference to lives.
Her growth in Aged Care has been due to the love and respect she has for the elderly and the difference she wants to make in their later years. She loves the relationships she builds with the elderly, and is particularly passionate about getting to know clients overall and creating personalised care plans for them to help achieve their goals.
