Now, as part of Anglicare’s team of aged care workers, supporting her clients often means going the distance in more ways than one. As a home care worker, it’s not uncommon for Andrea to travel more than 300 kilometres in a day, visiting clients on remote properties, so they can safely and comfortably remain in their own homes
