With a wealth of experience as an Army Nurse, Juvenile Justice Youth Worker and Child Care Licensing Officer with DCP, as a social worker for the Blind Association and the Health Department, plus qualifications to teach mindfulness meditation, Tania has a unique appreciation of how complicated our social systems can be. Over many years she has assisted families and older people with residential care placements, conducted specialist aged care assessments as part of the Aged Care Assessment Team and helped with navigating complicated community supports. Tania is a member of AASW (Australian Association of Social Work).
"Working in hospitals and the broader community over the years has been not just an eye opener but a privilege, and I am acutely aware of the difficulties people face when they can no longer return home or have suddenly lost their independence. This loss always comes as a shock because we think it is never going to happen to us." The goal of Mindfulways is to provide support and care to you through this time of change and ease some of the burden and pain of finding and applying for residential care or accessing community supports so that loved ones can remain in their own home.
