Mary Arnold – Pastoral Care Coordinator
Mary is a registered nurse having specialized and practiced for many years in Midwifery and Paediatrics. In recent years Mary completed more study and now practices as a Clinical Counsellor.
Her nursing and counselling understanding, as well as her personal experience of the transitions in ageing (having walked the road with ageing relatives), have equipped Mary well for her position as Pastoral Care Coordinator – leading a Pastoral Care team as together they support residents and family members adjust to a new and sometimes challenging phase of life.
Mary loves people and her role provides a wonderful opportunity to walk alongside, support and encourage older people as they adapt to changes that often are filled with loss. She considers it a privilege to help grieving people find hope.
Mary is married to Noel, has 2 adult married children and 5 grandchildren. To relax Mary enjoys homemaking, family and friends, needlework and holidays!
