Special Friendship at Northern Gardens

The bond between carer and resident

Catherine has worked as personal carer at Northern Gardens Aged Care for the last 4 years and recently shared what her relationship with Connie means to her.

When asked Catherine replied “Connie gives me the warmest smile when she sees me, she just knows when I feel sad or upset, she takes my hand and kisses it, she strokes my face. The look in her eyes shows she really cares, Connie cannot talk but she does not have to with me, we just understand each other.

"Connie makes me feel special like I am here for her but really she is here for me”
