Farewell Angela McInnes
After 10 years of loving life in the hot Australian sun, we bid farewell to our Director of Care and Clinical Service, Angela McInnes. Angela’s passion for providing quality care for those living with Dementia helped Westmont create our Cottages. The Cottages model of care, allowing residents to live in a ‘home’ lifestyle is one of her greatest achievements.
We are happy to introduce you to Ishani Jagoda.
Ishani is from Sri Lanka and moved to Australia in 2018 after she met her husband.
Ishani has always enjoyed working with the elderly. She hopes to train as an RN in the next few years.
Ishani loves to cook and always has a smile on her face.
Our staff are grateful for all that she does every week. Leah has been with Westmont for 12 years.
Her favourite part of her job is talking to all our residents and hearing their amazing life stories.
Thank you Leah!
Nabina joined Westmont early this year as an RN. Nabina and her husband migrated to Australia from Nepal. She grew up in a town near Pokhara which is in the centre of Nepal and is the gateway to the Annapurna trekking circuit which is very popular. Nabina’s favourite food is a Nepalese dumpling!
In Nabina’s culture multiple generations of family live together in one household. She helped care for her grandparents and enjoys taking care of our residents..
Thank you Nabin
