Marissa’s Story

Marissa hits the jackpot with her first job at HammondCare

Marissa has been working as an Occupational Therapist in the Palliative Care team at HammondCare’s Greenwich Hospital for three years. She knew she wanted to be involved on a more permanent basis after she joined the rehabilitation unit to complete her university degree placement in 2017.

“I fell in love with HammondCare straight away!” says Marissa. “I started as an Allied Health Assistant and being part of such a close-knit multi-disciplinary team is so rewarding. Every day when I arrive at work it’s as if I am coming home to family. It feels very comfortable.”

Marissa is a full-time member of the team where she provides rehabilitation and palliative support to patients.

“Our team focus is giving patients what they want, not just what they need when they are nearing the end of their lives. For example, if someone wishes to die at home, we try to make it happen for them.”

Marissa appreciates the many aspects of her role. “When I am working in the rehab space, it is very rewarding to see patients improve day by day.” She finds equal fulfilment administering care in the palliative environment. “It is wholistic, fulfilling work. We get to celebrate the small things and to be totally in the moment with the patients.”

There have been numerous memorable occasions for Marissa at Greenwich Hospital, such as when a young patient with leukaemia proposed to his girlfriend. They got married before he passed away. “It was a team effort to make this happen for him – our social worker, pastoral care team and Nurse Unit Manager came together to action his last wish.

“That’s another reason why I endorse HammondCare: it’s a level working environment where I get to work alongside patients, families and health care professionals. The combined teamwork enables choice and we tailor our practices to include the other people in patients’ lives. It’s an inclusive setting where we are also challenged to adjust to different situations and circumstances, daily. Every patient is unique, and we respond accordingly.“As an organisation, HammondCare upholds a very flexible ‘person-centred approach to delivering care to our patients. We make things happen. I really enjoy this aspect of my job. I feel very supported by my team; we support each other. I know I can approach anyone for advice, whether it is a colleague or a senior member. I never feel alone.”

Marissa has a range of patients in her care, aged from their 20s to 90s. She has grown her communication and rapport building skills on the job. “I feel valued. My opinion is always considered. I am encouraged to come up with innovative ideas no matter how complex or simple. We find time to have fun, too.”

Another highlight for Marissa has been participating in the DREAMS Project. “A patient I was caring for requested to go on a shopping trip in a taxi before he passed away. It was very rewarding to enable that wish for him. I will always remember the expression of joy on his face when he saw the taxi pull up.

“I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else. I feel very lucky to be working at HammondCare. The on the job training, support and friendly environment are second to none. I’ve hit the jackpot with my first job!”

Our Mission

Our passion is improving the quality of life for people in need.

Independent

Throughout its history, HammondCare has been highly independent. HammondCare works with all denominations but is not owned by any. This enables us to be flexible and means that we are able to move anywhere to meet an identified need. We are also innovative in our approach to health and aged care and in the services we provide – we seek to lead rather than follow.

Mission

HammondCare remains strongly and intrinsically Christian. HammondCare stands for compassion as clearly seen and heard in the Gospel records of the life of Jesus and his challenging words in Matthew 25:

“I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you made me welcome, naked and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to see me… whenever you did this to one of the least of my brothers and sisters, you did it to me.”

Charity

HammondCare has always been a charity. While needs have changed over the years, HammondCare has and will continue to focus on those who need our help. Like the good Samaritan, we cannot “walk on the other side”. We cannot ignore or decline to do things because they are too hard, or they involve risk, or they are unprofitable. We continue to be risk-takers for those whose lives are at risk.

Our motivation

The work of HammondCare is motivated by Christian principles and values expressed in the words and deeds of Jesus Christ. HammondCare believes in the value of all people as made in the image of God and as loved by God. We are therefore called to show the same love, with compassionate and respect, for people in need.
