Yurike Murray, inspiring Warrigal Employee
One of my happiest memories was receiving my Australia Citizenship because Australia is such a great country with so many great people and opportunities.
My career as a Carer began with Warrigal in 2011, my very first job application was with Warrigal. I thought it was amazing as I was new to Australia and was being accepted so soon. I had never done anything like caring before, apart from looking after my elderly mother. I realised that I was good at this work because I like being with people and I like to help people.
One day when I went to a see a client who was socially withdrawn, I stopped to purchase a game of scrabble. When I got there I said to the client “come on lets play scrabble”. He enjoyed this so much that when I arrived the next time he would be waiting at the table with the scrabble game already set up ready to go. This inspired me to try other things with him such as singing, paper mache, painting, sewing and puzzles. I told the client that he was helping me improve my English if we played the games together!
