“RFBI cares for our elderly in a loving way – it is something I would want for my loved ones.”

Tabitha is one of our passionate and committed team members based in RFBI Cessnock Masonic Village in the Hunter Valley. She is one of our wonderful Hotel Service Officers, providing quality cleaning services to our residents, making beds and ensuring they feel comfortable and relaxed in their village homes.

With so many career opportunities on offer, from registered nurses and carers to cooks, maintenance workers and hotel service officers, Tabitha believes working in aged care is for anyone who has the heart to help people.

“No matter what role you have in aged care, you can make a difference in our beautiful resident’s lives. RFBI encourages staff to further their career. I have been approached and supported to further my nursing studies and, when the time feels right, I might take them up on that offer. RFBI is always finding ways to help build the aged care workforce,” Tabitha shared of her career experience.

One of the special things about working in aged care is having the opportunity to make an impact in our elderly resident’s lives. But it’s also a chance to learn from them, listen to their stories and build friendships. Tabitha shares that behind-the-scenes insight beautifully.

“When I am not cleaning, I love to talk and spend time with our residents and help them in any way I can. I join them for activities such as bingo and other games, and take the chance to get to know them. They are all very special to me and have amazing stories to share,” Tabitha said.

“Working in aged care makes me really happy.”
