Meet Thomas Anderson, the General Manager at Regis Rosebud. Commencing his work at Regis Aged Care in 2015 as a Registered Nurse, Thomas has undertaken numerous roles stating, “what haven’t I done?” Thomas had ambitions of becoming a manager, and after working in a public hospital for 6 years, took a leap of faith in aged care to pursue this goal. After 12 months, he was the Clinic Manager at Regis Sandringham in Victoria, and since then has worked in 15 Homes throughout Victoria and Tasmania.
When asked why he was attracted to working within the sector, Thomas affirmed “aged care just worked with who I was, and it was the best decision of my career.” He stated, “Regis has been nothing but supportive in my development and goals.”
A typical day for Thomas is “busy, rewarding, holistic, exhausting and satisfying.” He loves working with all the highly skilled employees “to ensure a safe, skilled and caring environment for all residents.” Thomas is passionate about providing the highest quality of care to all residents at Regis Rosebud, reiterating “I enjoy knowing that I am supporting a team that provides the best care.”
When asked what advice he would give to those curious about working within the aged care sector, Thomas emphasised that it “is very rewarding and has so much growth and personal potential.”
“I like that my actions and initiatives have a direct and positive impact on the residents and staff that I work with.”
Outside of work, Thomas loves movies, home renovation projects and has a coffee obsession.
