#PeopleofArcare – Sally Annesley

We get to know more about Sally Annesley, Residence Manager at Arcare Knox and The Lodge.

How long have you been working at Arcare?

Approximately, 7 years.

What do you enjoy about your role and working in aged care?

I love the diversity of my role. There is always something new and I am constantly challenged. I thoroughly enjoy working with the team to find new and creative ways to support our community at Knox.

What is a memorable moment or story you recall working at your residence with either a resident or a team member?

There are so many stories and people from over the years. Currently, there is a resident’s husband that comes to visit regularly. He always stops in for a chat with me and we spend quite some time talking and laughing about all sorts of things. I really enjoy that time and I value that conversation, support and laughter in my day. It’s what it’s all about.

What pearls of wisdom or words of encouragement do you live by?

I have always been guided by the belief that it is important to treat others as I would like to be treated.

What hobbies or interests do you have outside of work?

My young daughter keeps me busy outside of work. I love spending time with her and sharing her joy as she learns about the world around her. So, lots of singing, dancing and Barbie dolls! 😊
