“It’s very rewarding to see a smile on their faces and to go home knowing that you have made a difference to their lives.” These are the words of Ryan Hicks, Lifestyle Coordinator at our Home in Kirwan, Queensland.
With a team that is constantly going above and beyond for our residents, Ryan is a proud member of the Lifestyle Team and expressed that he “loves the fact that our team can do all the fun and exciting things with our residents.” Our Lifestyle Program is broad and varied and runs seven days a week, which is extremely beneficial for the wellbeing of our residents.
Each day, Ryan starts his day by checking in on all the residents and liaising with colleagues to understand if there is anything he needs to be aware of to ensure the day runs smoothly. Ryan’s schedule consists of completing assessments for new residents and updating those of current residents. This is an important aspect of their care and helps the team tailor the care plans for each of our residents, so they can stay engaged in activities and interests that suit them. With daily activities both in the morning and the afternoon, each day is busy and varied and provides an opportunity to improve the quality of life for our residents.
Ryan shared that “Regis is very supportive of their staff, and the Lifestyle Program really gets the residents involved in the best choices of activities.”
Outside of work, Ryan loves nothing better than traveling and exploring new places.
