Meet Kate, our Director of Nursing at Heritage Epping. Kate Kaur began her Diploma of Nursing in 2013 and her first placement in residential aged care was so positive that it cemented her career choice in supporting the elderly.
“I find my role so rewarding. I provide leadership and operational management in the delivery of excellence in clinical care. This ranges from ensuring the nursing team and care staff at Heritage Epping provide care that meets residents’ needs as identified in their care plans and in accordance with The Aged Care Quality Standards,” explains Kate.
“I am supported by a skilled and wonderful multi-disciplinary team that collectively delivers high quality customer service to the residents and their families. What people may not know is that we provide assisted living within an intimate community and help residents feel empowered to live independently and with choice.
“Nothing is more rewarding than making residents and work colleagues smile or laugh. Solving queries and witnessing the effect of filling someone’s bucket demonstrates the difference you make to someone’s day. In residential aged care, you truly make a difference…every single day!” reveals Kate.
Kate has been a valued member of the Heritage Epping team for over two years. “My manager Julio Castillo is amazing. The entire nursing and support team are awesome too and that’s why I enjoy working for this company. I am so grateful for the career opportunities and advancements offered at Heritage Care,” explains Kate. Originally seconded for six months to the role of Director of Nursing, Kate seized the opportunity and made such a positive impression that the executive team appointed her permanently in the role.
“If someone is thinking about working in residential aged care, I would tell them that aged care is the perfect place for somebody who has compassion and empathy, two essential elements in quality care and the ability to put a smile on a resident’s face,” encourages Kate.
