RIVERTON resident and carer Tammy Rezaei-Darajazini first started working for Braemar Presbyterian Care in 2006 and, just over 10 years on, she is still lighting up the lives of residents for whom she cares.
Ms Rezaei-Darajazini, who was born and raised in Iran, said the last decade has flown by and, as well as meeting lots of people, her longevity with the East Fremantle aged care residence had helped her to make a difference to the lives of many.
“I love the residents at Braemar House and have got to know them so well over the years, basically if they’re happy I’m happy,” Ms Rezaei-Darajazini, who trained as an enrolled nurse in Iran before migrating to Australia in 1994 when her husband began studying for a PhD, said.
“I feel blessed to work at Braemar, everyone is exceptionally friendly and it’s a happy place to go to work every day.
“I think it’s fair to say that many of the residents consider the team at Braemar House as part of their extended family, we all just get on so well and really enjoy what we do.”
Ms Rezaei-Darajazini was recently recognised for her long service along with several of her colleagues who were each celebrating 15, 10 and five year long service milestones during Braemar Presbyterian Care’s Care and Friendship Annual Dinner and Values in Action Staff Awards.
Braemar Presbyterian Care chief executive Glenn Muskett said Tammy’s dedication to Braemar residents and their families over the past 10 years had been exceptional.
