Carer of the month – Jessica

Jessica joined us back in October 2017, and has provided more than 125 weeks of care through Elder’s platform. She has been the primary carer for two care recipients for more than two years, and was nominated for Carer of the Month by Robyn, a Family Support Specialist here at Elder.

“Jess has always gone above and beyond with her clients, for whom she has provided care for two years now! With an enthusiasm for horticulture, Jess grows fruit, veg and herbs in the garden which she uses in her cooking, the latest being some fresh fruit pies! Jess has an unfaltering ‘can do’ attitude and will always find a solution to any challenge that she is faced with. You are such a pleasure to speak to, and support, so a huge thank you from me and the rest of us here at Elder.”

Nominated by Robyn F, Elder HQ

From everyone at Elder, congratulations Jessica
