Having worked in aged care for more than 25 years, Sam Gillick holds bountiful knowledge to pass on to her students at Nepean Industry Edge Training. After beginning her career as a carer, she moved to diversional therapy and now she’s the lifestyle co-ordinator at a nursing home. Sam reckons she has the best job in the house because no two days are the same. Currently, she dedicates her time to co-ordinating calendars and programs for her 121 residents — it’s all about engaging them to make sure their lifestyle care is attended to just as their medical care is. 

“It’s very rewarding to get close and personal with the residents and their families,” said Sam. “And as a teacher who is still working within the field, it means I can give my students real and up-to-date information. I like to get my students engaged early and inspired to improve the lives of elders.”

Teaching at NIET means Sam can contribute to creating the next generation of carers and make sure they’re at the high standard required in the industry. She teaches Certificate IV in Leisure and Health and Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing), and spends every Monday with her students while they learn the theoretical side before being assisted by NIET in finding a centre to take them on for their practical placement. 

 “To work well in this career you must have kindness and compassion — but you can’t teach that. Every day I go to work I see something sad, so I bring something positive to the residents every day. I have a chat with them, take them on an outing, or teach them new skills. It’s emotional work, but you’ve got to find a balance. If you love being around people and hearing their stories, then this is an extremely rewarding career for you.”

If you are interested in a career working in aged care, contact NIET on 97701633.
