Employer: AustCare Training

Michelle Clements is a dedicated AustCare trainer who began her career as a graphic artist before transitioning to her rewarding career in healthcare.

Michelle was inspired by her father who experienced early onset Alzheimer’s Disease and she wanted to extend her love and care to vulnerable people.

Michelle also completed a year of Registered Nursing training at University of Southern Queensland, gaining a Royal College of Nursing Australia Scholarship, which was deferred due to her father’s ill health. But this didn’t stop Michelle from achieving her dreams.

She found her true calling teaching with AustCare Training and takes great pride in being able to inspire people to care for others with empathy. Her passion lies in providing people with dementia the best opportunities to remain connected to community and live a good life. She’s been working with the organisation for five years, training students in Aged Care, Dementia Care, Home and Community, Disabilities, First Aid/CPR, Medications and Palliative Care.

Michelle prides herself on helping all students to succeed, reach their goals and gain employment.
