At Jubilee Community Care it is important to us that you know who is coming to your home to provide support and care. So let us introduce you to Sophie – one of our full-time permanent support workers who started with Jubilee in June 2021. Here she is in her own words.
Hi, my name is Sophie. I was born and raised in Cambodia and immigrated to Australia with my husband in 2011. We have a daughter who is four.
In addition to English, I am fluent in Khmer which is the national language of Cambodia.
I have a Bachelor of Business in International Tourism and Hotel Management from Griffith University. I also have an English Literature degree from Cambodian University for Specialties.
Growing up in a family-oriented home and having watched my parents caring for my grandparents and providing support to some of the most vulnerable elderly in my village, inspired me to work in the aged care sector.
Now, working at Jubilee I support clients across a range of areas including medication management, personal care like showering and dressing, and we go on outings or attend appointments. There is a lot of variety in the role so I also help clients prepare meals and do some cleaning too.
Working fulltime provides me the opportunity to meet the same clients every week which allows me to build rapport and provide consistency of care. I love that! I also enjoy working with Jubilee as it gives me flexibility with my young family and study. I love, as a team, that we can help people to stay in their own homes by providing tailored services to suit each client’s needs.
