At OAS we pride ourselves on our integrity and ethical behaviour. We are an independently operated family business who understands how difficult the process of moving a loved one into aged care can be. We offer a compassionate, sensitive and insightful approach to each client’s situation.
Through respectful, open and honest communication we provide the means to navigate the aged care system. Our skills can be used from as little as pointing you in the right direction to travelling on the whole journey with you. We are not bed brokers and are not affiliated with any other company.
Marilyn is a registered nurse whose passion for older people has seen her working in the aged care industry for 17 years. She is interested in not only helping with their day-to-day concerns but in their lives, their stories and most of all their welfare.
Marilyn left a successful job in customer service to pursue her nursing career after looking after her own mother who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. It is because of this time spent looking after her own mother that Marilyn understands the stress, emotion and guilt suffered by families whose loved one suffers from dementia and other mental illnesses.
To further her ability to provide care Marilyn gained her Diploma of Management to allow her to broaden her working career beyond nursing and administration culminating in her most recent position of managing a facility’s Home Care Package program. During this time she has learned to be a conscientious listener and to find out what the client really wants. The need of the client and their family is paramount in determining the best options available to their circumstances.
