Pat Daliardos has been working to support older people with St. Basil’s NSW/ACT for over ten years, and is the Community Services Coordinator.
“When I first joined St Basil’s, I started as a support worker. I absolutely loved being part of a team in assisting with everyday living needs of older adults, and feeling as though I made a difference to their lives,” says Pat.
Pat now works as a Community Services Coordinator and plays a leading role in the team around her to support the work of in-home care workers and day centre services.
“I absolutely love my role and love to support in the care needs across the greater Sydney community.”
Pat works to find tailored solutions to support each person’s care needs, to make the lives of older people more comfortable and to help them to live independently in their home and community for as long as possible.
“I would totally recommend working in aged care, especially if you are a person that loves people and making a difference in their daily lives.”
“It is a fulfilling job and is very suited to someone that wants a sense of job satisfaction.”
“Just knowing that you are part of contributing to enhancing someone’s life is a wonderful feeling. It is a challenging role and one that makes me feel as though I am contributing to my community,” adds Pat.
“I really do adore all of my consumers and try to always assist them with making their lives as stress free as possible. They deserve all the respect in the world!”
