Meet Brock Muller, 25, who challenges the stereotypical attitude that aged care is not a workplace for young people.
Brock has worked as a personal care assistant at Resthaven Mount Gambier for three years, and brings with him youthful enthusiasm and a willingness to learn from the older people he supports.
Brock says, ‘I believe strongly in the values of Resthaven, and I am proud to work there. As a male, I believe that I bring diversity to a female-dominated workplace.’
The residents at Resthaven Mount Gambier agree. Mrs Pauline Scott was thrilled to participate in filming a testimonial with Brock, enjoying a walk around the beautiful site gardens together while the cameras rolled.
The Resthaven Mount Gambier site gardens include age-friendly features such as raised garden beds, eco lighting, and smooth, extra-wide paths. They are designed to stimulate the senses with colourful, sweet-smelling flowers, wind chimes, and water features. It’s no wonder that Brock and Mrs Scott enjoyed them!
Resthaven Mount Gambier opened in 2011 as a purpose-built, state of the art residential aged care home. It is home to around 100 residents, who are supported in their individual wellness goals by approximately 100 dedicated staff.
