“For some of our senior clients, we are the ones who interact with them the most, which means we need to pay attention to the changes.”
MELBAR 人物 VOL.6 —— 运营经理 April Dong
According to a study done by the Australian Department of Health, seniors over 65 years old are at a high risk of suffering from dementia. Even though early detection of dementia is becoming more and more common, cultural and linguistic barriers make it particularly easy to misdiagnose early onset dementia for Australian seniors from multi-ethnic backgrounds.
“My parents aren’t in Australia and the seniors often care about my well-being, which makes me feel like they are my own parents. I can tell they care about me from the bottom of their heart, it motivates me to do more and help them as much as I can.”
In Australia, over 1 .7 million people have some form of kidney disease and you can lose up to 90% of your kidney function before getting any symptoms.
In addition to the typical Melbar services we provide, professional care worker services and case management services, we can also provide you with professional registered nurse assessment.
“I think it takes a lot of love and patience to be a care worker. This career requires constant efforts, and you need to face different challenges along the way, but the job is so meaningful”
“Since being at Melbar, I have developed a more comprehensive understanding on Australian welfare policies. I feel fulfilled seeing all the seniors that we have helped and I am confident about my future retirement. I believe that when I am older and need help, I will receive the same level of love and care.”
