Tracy comes to Like Our Own with over 26 years of experience in nursing. She began her career as Assistant in Nursing (PCA) in New Zealand in an aged care facility at just 19 years old and her passion for working with the elderly grew from there. She is now a Registered Nurse and has worked in Aged Care since then, including several residential aged care homes. She keeps her skills current with ongoing education as she believes there is always something to learn from dementia, palliative care, wound management, to diabetes and more.
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.
