Meet three of our incredible support workers ...
Kim had recently moved to a new hometown with her four children when she came across an ad in the newspaper advertising jobs to work at Nextt. It sparked an interest in Kim who enquired but informed Nextt that she was limited with her hours due to her last child starting kindergarten and her other three still in primary school. Kim considered herself luckily having secured a job as a community support worker providing assistance to clients varying from In-Homecare, Respite, Personal Care and Transport. Kim was able to work flexible hours which for Kim, proved to be an ideal working arrangement.
Bring part of a team who collectively work to allow clients to remain in their homes for as long as possible is important and rewarding to Kim. She gives her client’s families a peace of mind that there is someone to support and care for their loved ones. Kim’s good sense of humor and hard working attitude lets her develop an instant rapport when meeting clients for the first time. Being patient, trustworthy, positive and always on time are some strong qualities Kim displays, making Kim well admired amongst clients. She is able to make clients feel comfortable around her and at ease.
Raising four children and two dogs with her husband, Kim takes pride in herself in doing the best job at home and at work. Clients speak of Kim fondly and with warmth and respect. When Kim is not working, you will find her off making her way to the local markets or travelling to her childhood holiday destination with her family.
Elaine started working with Quality in Home back in 1999 which was then bought out by Nextt. She worked as a full time support worker before going part time to care for her husband.
About four years ago, Nextt saw great potential in Elaine and offered to train her as an on call consultant allowing her to work from home. Elaine appreciates this role as it allows her to continue to talk to clients and get to know the support workers. Clients who ring are surprised to talk to a real, helpful and lovely person like Elaine and not a machine. Elaine has and continues to learn within the role and enjoys coming into the Nextt office when necessary. She is patient and understanding of our support workers and clients’ needs. Her encouraging, caring, friendly nature and her readiness to listen allows support workers to feel comfortable when contacting her.
When Elaine is not working, she can be found cross stitching or tapestry stitching at her on site van at Maldon with a cup of tea by her side. She enjoys going to the movies and loves spending time with her four supportive children and her six beautiful grandchildren.
Philomena joined Nextt in 2007 starting as a support worker with duties in Personal Care, Respite, Home Care and people with acquired brain injuries (ABI). Within seven months of working for Nextt, the company saw a lot of potential in Philomena and gave her the opportunity to work within the back up response team known as B. U. R. T. Having already worked for a range of different services, Philomena was and continues to be faced with challenges within her role. She said having challenges have shaped her ability to problem solve and is able to overcome problems with confidence. It has changed her perspective into a more positive one. Clients appreciate having Philomena as their support worker as she is always happy and smiling.
The most rewarding part of her job is being able to help individuals with their everyday living, to help them get more out of life. The clients, fellow support workers and office staff at Nextt are what make Philomena’s job so rewarding and enjoyable.
Coming from a big Italian family, Philomena is a happy and hard worker with a wicked sense of humour and she would make a great actor! She puts 100% into her work and uses her extensive experience and knowledge to deliver excellent service to her clients.
Philomena is an animal lover who loves to come home to her three cats: Loki Thor, Jasper and her dog Macgyver. She loves to visit her two beautiful children who have all grown up and are living their lives to the fullest.
Nextt is proud to have such incredible and hard working staff like Kim, Elaine and Philomena within our community.
We look forward to hearing from you
