Meet the team: Debra, Nursing & Aged Care Manager (SA)

  • 2 mins

This month we welcomed Debra Gabrovsek to the HenderCare Team!

Debra joins the team as Nursing and Aged Care team Manager in SA. We recently spoke with Debra to find out more about her role, what she loves about working in the industry, and what she likes to do on the weekends.

Can you tell me about your role and what it involves?

Wow! Varied and interesting. I support a team that provides older service recipients with the support that enables them to remain independent and safe in their own homes.

What drew you to this particular role and industry?

I come from an Aged Care and Disability background, and I am generally a people pleaser. I would hope my mother (who is 99, 100 in May) is treated well, and this reflects my attitude to the service that I think providers should strive to achieve.

I love the challenges and changes that I am faced with and hope to implement positive changes and promote a culture within my team to enjoy what they do as much as I do.

What do you enjoy doing most on weekends/your days off?

I love food and wine! But to try (and I mean try) and balance this, I love to head out on my bike on the linear park and have a good ride (this also generally involves food, usually a great breakfast somewhere).
