Registered Nurse Rebecca Bingham has joined the Seasons team as Industry Liaison Officer, providing clinical solutions for people navigating the aged care maze. She tells us what she enjoys most about working in aged care and what she hopes to achieve at Seasons.

Commencing her career as a Registered Nurse in 1996 and working across acute and general medical in country hospitals before specialising in oncology, haematology, pain management and palliative care in Brisbane, Rebecca soon moved into working in aged care.

From working in community care and Residential Aged Care, Rebecca then moved into a home care community model of care as an Industry Liaison clinician allowing her to educate and collaborate with industry partners in the aged care space as well as provide solutions to individuals and families looking for aged care.

Rebecca says that she brings an education and solutions focus and a passion to make a difference to her new role at Seasons.

“I really believe in ensuring that our ageing population has someone that advocates for what they want, and we support them through this process by being a trusted advisor that can help them see they have choices, whatever their health care need, their financial situation or where they are on their ageing journey,” says Rebecca.

What inspired you to be part of the Seasons team?

To work with a team of professionals that are providing great outcomes for our ageing population and in an organisation that values integrity and transparency. I am looking forward to working in an environment where I can continue to contribute to the education of the health care industry about alternatives to the traditional nursing home model of care.

Which key aspect of the Seasons model appeals to you most?

The transparency of the model of care – everyone has their own care fund that they can contribute to and they have a choice about the care they receive and who delivers this care.

Describe a memorable instance where you have made a difference in someone’s life

A husband and wife were at risk of being separated when the husband – who was caring for his wife with dementia – became unwell and was admitted to hospital. He was told by his specialist that he had to go to a nursing home and so would his wife. His wife would have been sent to a secure dementia unit and he would have been put in the non-secure wing. I was able to help them come to a home care community and they were able to stay together and have care delivered directly to their unit.

What is it about your work that gives you the most satisfaction?

Making a positive difference in people’s lives. Ensuring our ageing population receive the respect and dignity that they all deserve along every step of their ageing journey.

I enjoy supporting families with their ageing loved one to ensure they are comfortable with the decisions that have been made regarding the care and service delivery their loved one requires. Ensuring that people know that they have choice about where they can go to have care during their ageing journey.

I am also motivated by creating opportunities where we can educate our health industry about alternatives to aged care and collaborate together for better health outcomes for our ageing population.

What do you hope to achieve in your role at Seasons?

I am looking forward to creating an opportunity for our ageing population to see, feel and live at our Seasons communities and ensuring that there are great health outcomes for our ageing population.
