Brooke Norrie is no stranger to the aged care industry.
She first worked in the HealthCare industry straight from school, being drawn to giving back to the community.
Here, she found her calling supporting the care needs of older people.
A brand new role with SECC
And Brooke’s new role of Home Care Packages Business Manager with SECC is the perfect fit.
The Social Science graduate has also supported clients with brain injuries and disabilities. She’s also managed human resources and marketing teams.
Brooke has a real heart for her local community, having worked for a long time in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
A love for the industry
“I work in aged care because I love it. I love the stories and relationships I get to build with such a diverse group of people” Brooke says.
She has managed Home Care Packages for over three years while working with Kincare. Now she is looking forward to supporting SECC clients in the new role.
“It can be lonely for our older population sometimes, and having someone advocate for you is important,” she says.
“I love that I can be that person people come to for support.
“When they speak with myself or our team, they can find out what’s available to them.
“This role at SECC is broader than case management.
“It is about growing the Home Care Packages part of the SECC business and familiarising the community with the variety of services SECC provides.”
A journey of care
Brooke is looking forward to connecting the community with SECC.
“My values about how to treat people align well with those of SECC,” Brooke says.
“It’s not about the bottom line with SECC. It is about caring for people as individuals and supporting the community.”
