  • Vicki Says

    Vicki says: “Many times I felt out of my comfort zone but with support and encouragement from my team and the management I have achieved something I didn’t think possible. There is so much opportunity at Shaw and the support is everywhere. It is also very rewarding no matter what role.  Looking after the residents and seeing them smile makes it a joy to come to work. They are like family.”
