Pratiksha Shrestha – Baptist Care Carey Gardens

After the PEPA training and placement, I am confident and more comfortable to take care of the resident in palliative care, able to understand and manage the sign and symptoms of the deteriorating resident. In my workplace, I implemented the knowledge that I acquire from the PEPA program. Care staff are the main backbone of age care and they come in contact with the resident everyday, I educated the care staff about the palliative care approach so they can monitor, distinguish and report any distress, sign and symptoms, pain any deterioration in the resident so that can be managed correctly and in timely manner as making the resident comfortable at the end stage of their life is the ultimate goal.
