Congratulations Vicki Condon on being named the 2015/16 Employee of the Year at last week’s Heathcote Health AGM.
The Board of management selected Vicki for the assistance she provided the Aged Care staff when she took it upon herself to engage and calm a resident, who was exhibiting severe dementia behaviours.
Vicki went above and beyond her normal duties to work one-on-one with the resident, engaging them in meaningful activities such as washing dishes and helping with the morning tea trolley, all while continuing to complete her own tasks.
Through this engagement, positive outcomes were achieved for the resident and the Aged Care team were allowed to respond to the needs of other residents in a timely fashion.
