Meet Apeksha Y
Physiotherapist in Aged Care, NSW
What’s your favourite part about your job? My favourite part of my job is to help ease residents' pain, keep them moving as much as possible and of course bring a smile to their faces.
Tell us about the story behind the photo you submitted? The photo is just a small part of our team who are always ready to take care of our senior residents.
How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted your job? It’s a very crucial time for all of us. Our residents are not allowed to have visitors, so to see them missing their families like this aches our heart. We all try our best to cheer them up and engage them in different activities to try and bring a smile to their faces. It’s a tough time but it shall pass.
What’s been your hack for staying positive during such a challenging time? My 10 month old daughter is my source of positivity. She is the beginning of a new chapter in my life and it has not even fully started yet, so I am looking forward to having the best time of my life with her. I love her.
