I started here in 1993 as a health care assistant. Sometime later an opportunity arose for me to become the Activities Co-ordinator. At the time I thought that this was my dream job. As I took my role very seriously I felt I needed to learn more and enrolled for the Certificate in Diversoinal Therapy.
Belinda has been with Cairnfield House for about 5 years now, but has over 15 years of experience in the Aged Care Sector. She graduated from Northland Polytechnic and is a qualified Registered Nurse.
I started as a health care assistant then the manager at the time offered me the position as the receptionist as she felt I had the right personality.
I was born in Wellington and grew up there. I did my nursing training in Wellington Public Hospital, Lower Hutt Hospital and Silverstream Geriatric Hospital in the late 60′s to early 70′s. I did staff nursing in Psychiatry and surgery.
Julie has been with Cairnfield House for a number years now and is enjoying her role as Activities Coordinator. Prior to this position I worked in various rest homes for the last 18 years as a care assistant and the last 8 years have been here at Cairnfield.
