Dependability, reliability and compassion are traits that Just Better Care Community Support Worker Margaret has in spades.
It is these attributes that saw the Just Better Care Hills to Hornsby-based staff member be named last year’s National Just Better Care Possible Award Community Category winner in the company’s annual Possible Awards.
By making customers her first priority at all times, in all ways, Margaret consistently upholds the Just Better Care mantra by demonstrating that caring is her passion and not just her job.
When putting her name forward for the award, Margaret’s fellow team members referred to her as an “extraordinary employee”.
“Members of our team look up to Margaret for guidance. [She] often accompanies our junior staff members on buddy shifts teaching them a range of skills including how to diffuse a challenging situation, working with customers with complex support needs, all while helping them improve their documentation and understanding of their role.”
Now the time has come to recognise other staff members just like Margaret who consistently go above and beyond in supporting customers to achieve their goals.
