Our People Stories

We work with some true dream makers at Feros Care.

From community and residential care workers, allied health professionals, to business and operations staff, our people bring to the table a wealth of knowledge and skill – and, above all, stories! Read them below.

Gift giving can be challenging when it’s for people living with dementia. However, it’s not impossible. There are some great ideas out there for your loved one with dementia – these are our favourites.

You’ll now find Daniel kicking goals working at a not-for-profit disability service provider, and he couldn’t be happier.  He secured the part-time job soon after the Feros Care Work Experience Program, armed with newfound professional confidence and a readiness to take on challenges.

Wellbeing Manager Russ Hargreaves is many things – a minister, a valued part of the Feros Care team, a proud member in Feros Care’s Pride Support Network, and a leading advocate for the rainbow community, helping foster a culture of inclusion and acceptance.

The smiles that light up seniors’ faces when Russ Hargreaves enters the room say it all.

At Feros Care, we offer a variety of in-home health services which our clinical health professionals will tailor not only to your health goals, but to you as a person. Beyond assessing your physical capabilities, we go the extra mile to understand what makes you tick, so that you stay motivated to achieve your best.

Feros Care Community Support Worker Katja Russell

Katja is redefining the ‘norm’ – and his clients love it! Picture this; a charismatic young male with a super cool name living his best life as a Community Support Worker. That’s right, we said a ‘young’ person – with an X and Y chromosome – who loves his job working with seniors. So, what made Katja Russell pursue a career in aged care, and do the people he supports really welcome someone outside the industry stereotype into their lives with open arms? You bet they do.

Those who claim to effectively juggle work and parenthood often encounter wistful sighs, twinges of envy, and statements like, ‘my job makes that impossible.’

Korrine Napier, an inspirational go-getter who isn’t wired to do anything by halves, used to react this way. She was constantly torn between workplace and home demands, and experienced “colossal mum guilt.”

That was until she started working as a Wellbeing Manager at Feros Care.

Zahra, a young woman with bright coloured hair and a skateboard

One thing’s for sure, when you look at nursing student Zahra Fox, the words ‘aged care’ don’t exactly spring to mind. Eclectic, yes. Cool, for sure. Edgy, most definitely. Aged care worker…not so much. But, this bright haired, keyboard playing, snowboarding enthusiast is a part time residential care worker at Feros Care’s Bangalow Village. And in her words, she “wouldn’t be anywhere else.”
