Michelle’s experience

by Michelle, student at Holmesglen Institute

My name is Michelle and I am doing my lifestyle work experience placement at Arcare Brighton.

As my placement hours are coming to an end, I have been asked a few questions on my experience here.

Why did you choose lifestyle in aged care as a career path?

I enjoy working with the older generation and want to challenge everyone to do the best they can.

Have you enjoyed working here?

Yes, it’s been wonderful to engage with the residents and staff in a variety of activities and spend some time getting to know everyone.

Where do you hope to go from here?

I plan to find a position in aged care where I can utilise my skills as an art therapist, counselor and lifestyle activities assistant.

Michelle recently sat down with Betty to play a challenging word game. The word of the day was ‘Didaskaleinophobia’ which means the fear of going to school.

Michelle has been a wonderful friend and support to the Brighton Community during her placement.

Good luck Michelle!
