Our Aged Care Hero this month is Ravinder Kaur, a lovely health care assistant from Radius Waipuna.
Kaur takes part in all the ADL (activities of daily living) assisting with residents. From care, meals, to social activities and outings. She also plans distraction and interaction therapy with the residents as puzzle games to make every day more fun!
“I love the elderly residents, I love to help them participate and engage in things they want to do,”
Kaur helps residents solve problems while always being a listening ear for stories. It is a large part of what she does, and she loves it. Seeing her residents happy every day and happy to have her care for them is the highlight of her day. Kaur’s grandmother, who brought her up, passed away from cancer. Joining health care helped her through her mourning as she cared for the elderly the same way she would have continued to care for her grandmother – and elderly love is just so special.
“She would be so proud of me.”
Kaur’s grandmother often reminded her to always help others whenever she could thus, Kaur is always reminded of her lovely grandmother as she cares for others at Radius Waipuna.
