Belinda Davies

Operations Manager | Aged Care

What do you love about your role?

Being able to contribute and ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people receive the best possible care in residential care. I love coming to work every day and seeing the positive changes in the residents as a direct result of great care. I love the feeling of love and laughter you get every time you walk through the door at Jimbelunga.

Who inspires you?

My Mum inspires me every day to take care of those who are unable to care or speak for themselves. She is the best nurse and advocate I know.

What prompted you to get into this industry?

I started in aged care when I was 14 as a personal care worker. When I finished my nursing degree I moved into the hospitals however I always stayed working in aged care at some capacity because I have always had a passion for aged care particularly in the areas of dementia and palliative care.  As a Wemba Wemba woman, I have always wanted to be able to make a difference in Aboriginal peoples’ health and lives. Working for ATSICHS Brisbane is the first time in my career I feel I’m able to truly contribute and use my experience, education and passion to make a positive difference for my people.

Share a moment when you made a difference to a resident’s day?

Every day I believe I make a difference. Whether it is by working with others to increase services, assisting relatives and residents through the difficult transition of going into care, ensuring there is enough qualified staff to care for them, or simply having a dance or laugh with someone as I am walking down the hallways. Their smiles, hugs, thanks, happiness and improved health are all a daily reminder of the way in which anyone that walks through the door of Jimbelunga can make a difference to those that live here.

What are your hobbies outside of work?

When I’m not at work I enjoy time with my friends and family. I have three children who keep me busy.

What do you love about your role? 

All of it, the good and the bad. People find it rewarding if they are able to assist with bringing a new life into the world. I find it to be an honour to be a part of a person’s life in the end. Getting to know them, their story, their family and friends and allowing people to have a dignified and respectful death. Residential care is about caring holistically for a person, being vulnerable as those you care for can also be. Being able to assist and guide the staff to make good clinical decisions based on best practice.

Who inspires you? 

I cannot name only one person or thing, there are many people who inspire me every day. My mother, my family, staff and residents of ATSICHS, our beautiful country… the list is endless.

What prompted you to get into this industry?

I am a caring person, I decided that working in residential care, I can make a difference. The residents are more than just a passing face that I would normally meet in the acute sector. I would like to feel that my time in a resident’s life no matter how long or short has had a purpose or positivity to them and their families. Having a connection with Indigenous people that are genuine, respecting culture and tradition is important.

Share a moment when you made a difference to a resident’s day?

Having a resident come and sit in my office as they were feeling a little down, listening to them, sharing words and a gentle touch on their hand makes them feel that we care for them. That resident then told me a joke, stood up and thanked me and went about her day. (It’s the small things in life that can make the world of difference).

What are your hobbies outside of work?

My four children and grandson keep me busy. I love listening to the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach, sewing and watching my daughter dance. I also love going to the movies.
