Hello, my name is Marie and I am the proud Envigor Community Care Business Partner for the Ipswich Region.
I have worked in the area of community aged care across south east Queensland for a long time. I am hardworking, committed and I bring many years’ experience with duplicating a business model for clients and employees in this sector.
My management skills and client focus has been successful over the years due to my communication, and my ability to lead a team.
I was looking for a new challenge and I was inspired by the Envigor model where I could manage my own local business with the overarching support from a well-established organisation. Too many organisations have forgotten the reason why they work in their area, especially many that provide aged care services.
I value people, I am able to empower others as I am trusted and have integrity.
The thing that inspired me to work for Envigor was their desire to support people in living life envigorated. The messaging and culture within the team really resonates with everyone and becomes their own personal mission as well as the brand mission. Cohesive teams working together to better the lives of those around them is an inspirational thing to be a part of.
To me, dignity is respect to others, the ability to treat people as they deserve.
By providing dignity to others it has given me the ability to be trusted, to be fair, to have empathy and to not judge people. We are all human, we all have a story.
Your local Envigor Home Care team provides individualised personal and nursing care services to seniors, and people with a disability, living throughout Ipswich suburbs to Fernvale, Lowood, Blacksoil and Kohlo.
Marie, Envigor Home Care Community Care Business Partner for Ipswich, explains how she helped a client make new social connections:
“I used to hold an annual Christmas event for community clients. One gentleman who was socially isolated came along after I went out of my way to invite him. I asked him if he would please share his passion for the trumpet for over 120 clients. He was nervous and resistant although It was a rewarding moment as I stood proudly and watched him play on stage.
I then introduced him to other clients who were musicians. Through this he struck up a friendship with another man and they kept in touch and played music together each fortnight at his home. His son later told me this certainly made a difference to his father’s life.”
