Project Hamrahi mentor in Ahmedabad, Gujurat
Hi, I’m Toni and I have been working as a registered nurse in regional NSW for the past 28 years. My nursing career has taken a few twists and turns over the years, with the past ten years spent with the community palliative care team. I have also spent three years working as a Funeral Director. Part of my role has included mentoring new staff, educating medical students and demystifying death and dying within our community. I am passionate about facilitating patient and carer empowerment in end of life care and will be forever grateful to those families who have allowed me into their lives during such a sacred time.
Well, I have reached a time in my life where my children are more independent, allowing me the time to focus on projects outside my own community. A recent encounter in Indonesia inspired me to contribute more to developing communities. India has always fascinated me and a conversation with a work colleague, and APLI member Sarah, convinced me to jump on board. I look forward to learning and sharing knowledge with like-minded people to achieve the common goal of relieving suffering, creating connection and friendships.
