Lifestart’s strong commitment to building inclusive communities is reflected through the everyday work of our staff with children and young people with disability. Recently, we spoke to one of our physiotherapists, Taylor Denny about why she wanted to start working at Lifestart. This is what she had to say:
Why did you want to work at Lifestart?
I’ve always loved working with children and had a passion for movement.
I think what really made Lifestart stand out for me was that it seemed to be more about supporting and empowering clients to reach their goals. Lifestart also plays a big role in encouraging and facilitating inclusion for people with disabilities in the wider community which really made the company stand out for me.
How do you align with the values and mission of Lifestart?
Being family centered and building strong relationships with my clients, their families and their carers is essential in my work and forms the foundation of Lifestart’s philosophy. I work with my clients to help them set their own goals and then work in partnership with them to empower them to take the necessary steps forward. It’s never about what a client can’t do, it’s about harnessing what they can and building on their strengths.
Would you recommend working at Lifestart to people?
Absolutely. The culture at Lifestart is like no other place I have worked before. I’m still in awe of how much my colleagues support each other and work together. You can really tell that clients are the number one priority at Lifestart. Everyone I work with is passionate about how they can best support our clients and families and empower them to achieve the goals they set for themselves.
In my training for the position, the biggest stand out was how much we were told that there are no silly questions and we could ask whatever we needed to. I felt like our seniors were there to support us and help us grow as clinicians (and still are).
