Jennifer Edgell_Care at Home Coordinator at Mount Gilead

Jennifer Edgell is our Care at Home Coordinator at our South Western Sydney office within Mount Gilead Estate. She has worked in the Aged Care industry for over 7 years and throughout that time assisted in running a very active dementia unit with varying depths of severity and behaviours.

“It was challenging mentally, emotionally and physically, but working with these beautiful clients and their families was very rewarding,” Jennifer shared.

Having also cared for people in their own homes, Jennifer understands the importance for each individual to remain independent and stay at home for as long as possible. Jennifer’s role as a Care at Home Coordinator is to provide on-site support for residents living within Mount Gilead Estate and her passion and dedication to help shone through particularly when she assisted a resident through an ACAT assessment.

“I can’t speak highly enough of the help we were given, especially by Jen. We are very lucky to have an organisation like RFBI on-site, particularly when they have such experienced and caring staff like Jennifer. Although I had never met her before this, she has shown understanding, compassion, knowledge and kindness throughout the whole process,” said a resident who wishes to remain anonymous in respect for her partner.

“Caring for someone and assisting them in need is an honour and a job that should never be taken lightly,” Jennifer added.

For Jennifer, her family is her world. She has a wonderful partner and they share seven (7) children together. As a family, they love listening to music, swimming, going to the beach, painting and spending time with their extended family — their gorgeous dogs.
