Brendan: A Carer with a Musician's Soul

Brendan is a stellar member of the Prestige care team.  He’s been with Prestige Inhome Care for almost a year and has proved to be a wonderful asset to the Prestige team.  In January, he earned himself a Star Award:

“Brendan is a reliable and caring person. He always pays attention to detail. Brendan is always making sure clients receive the best possible service and he’s willing to pick up extra shifts to make sure clients receive care.  Very reliable and professional.”

It was a pleasure to learn more about Brendan:

“I play the trumpet with a band l started at the retirement village that l use to work for. We would play free concerts at different retirement villages. l have also played drums in a pipe band.

For the past 20 years, I have played the trumpet on Anzac Day at various ceremonies.  Sometimes l play The Last Post at funerals for the Military Services returned members,” Brendan shared with us.

While working, Brendan enjoys listening to his client’s life stories and sometimes finds he has more in common with some clients than you would expect.  His involvement in bands and Anzac Day ceremonies prompted him to get to know his client Eddie better.  Eddie was a member of the RAAF during World War 2 and on Anzac Day they shared a special photo together.

“Learning of Eddie’s military service gave me the idea to dress in my military band uniform and we searched for Eddie’s RAAF uniform.  On ANZAC Day he proudly wore his jacket, and it was nice to be by his side for a photo together, recognising his service to Australia,” said Brendan.

When he’s not working or looking after his father as his primary carer, Brendan enjoys music and fitness.  “And of course, caring for people.”
