Michelle Marchant

Housekeeping Supervisor


If you were to ask our clients who their favourite staff members are, Michelle is certain to be on their lists! Michelle is always helping out in anyway she can as she believes "the simple things we can all take for granted are so appreciated every day by the amazing individual's we care for."

Michelle started with Gilgandra Lifestyles in January 2016 taking over the Cooee Lodge laundry. Over the past 2 years, Michelle's role has evolved and expanded. She has taken on Grade 3 house keeping which entails the supervision of all cleaning and ordering and stocking the chemicals and linen. Whilst appreciating the expansion in her role, Michelle says "my most fulfilling role is the laundry. To return washed and ironed clothes to the correct resident and feel their appreciation is very rewarding. Sewing on a button, hemming up a loose hem and seeing the happiness it gives a client is very special."

Outside of her housekeeping realm, Michelle states "The monthly BBQ is one of my favourite jobs. Weather permitting, one of the residents and I cook while everyone gathers outside. A volunteer plays some toe tapping songs, residents sing along and we all enjoy some nibbles and drinks. We all get the option of sausage or steak for lunch, followed by an icecream cone.This special lunch is enjoyed by all."
