My name is Marie and I work in the laundry department at Arcare Slacks Creek. I was born in France and migrated to Australia in 1975 with my family when I was 11 years old.

Throughout my years of working I worked at several different organisations, but as I reflected back, the one that always put a smile on my face when I worked at a nursing home as a kitchen hand. I recall meeting so many people and becoming friends with them.

So when my two children were in school and my friend Helen asked if I would be interested in doing some volunteer work at Arcare Slacks Creek, it seemed like a great idea and brought me much happiness and joy.

In 2008 I applied for a position in food services and cleaning, and went on to work in the Laundry department. I have made lots of friends and I enjoy the chats we have every day when I deliver the clothing to the rooms of my many friends.
