Hello, I am Michelle Woods, Care Services Manager for Envigor Maroochydore.
I started in the Aged Care sector back in 1996. At the time I had a 3 year old daughter and 5 year old son. They now have grown up, left school, gotten married and I am a proud grandma. During my career I have worked as a Diversional Therapist, Personal Care worker, Case Manager, Care Coordinator and now as a Care Service Manager.
I came onboard with Envigor when they were first established in 2018 and have been providing care and services to the Aged Care Community with Envigor ever since.
To me, there is nothing more rewarding than assisting someone to ensure they get the help they need and providing friendship and services to those who require them.
I have had the privilege of working with Clients, their families, staff and the community, to provide care at the beginning of a Clients journey and assisting them all the way though to the end of their journey, with palliative care. I find it incredibly rewarding and an honour to be part of my clients lives.
Your local Envigor Home Care team provides individualised personal and nursing care services to seniors, and people with a disability, living throughout Maroochydore, Mooloolaba, Buderim, Woombye, Sippy Downs, Bli Bli, Twin Waters, Pacific Paradise, Alexandra Heads, Kawana, Buddina and Mountain Creek.
Michelle recalls how she was able to make a difference in a Client’s life…
“I remember one of my clients who had previously lived in a nursing home. She had left the nursing home as she had the desire to live independently within her own home. She was vision impaired, so we worked together to ensure she had the right support and equipment to live independently.
She was thrilled when she was able to read, make herself a cup of tea and cook her own toast. She was excited to start living her own life.
Envigor made the world of difference for her.”
