Nirpreet feels supported working for Enliven

Nirpreet Kaur Brar has only been at Enliven’s Huntleigh Home in Karori for a month but is already settling in well.

Nirpreet, who moved to New Zealand from India in 2013, is the home’s new clinical nurse manager.

She was working at an aged care facility in Christchurch and took the role at Huntleigh Home after moving to Wellington with her husband.

She says her new role is off to a good start, and she feels supported and surrounded by experience.

“I enjoy working here, all the staff are very supportive. I have nurses with me, I have a clinical coordinator, the home manager is a registered nurse as well, so I feel very supported.”

Enliven is committed to supporting and developing its staff, which leads to positive outcomes for staff and residents alike.

This commitment was recognised at the 2022 New Zealand Aged Care Association Excellence in Care Awards where Enliven Central took out the Training and Staff Development Award and the Overall Excellence in Aged Care Award.

Nirpreet had previously worked for Enliven in Auckland, and her experience there made her want to return to work for Enliven again.

Her passion for working in aged care goes back to when she was in India and looking after her grandparents at home. She says the desire to help older people has followed her from her family and into her career.

Huntleigh Home in Karori and Cashmere Home in Johnsonville are looking for more great people to join their teams. If you, or someone you know is looking for a fun and rewarding role, visit our careers page.
