Meet our New Wellness Registered Nurses

Aromatherapy tools to relax residents.

Embracia Aged Care has introduced a new Wellness Program to both of our homes. This way we will ensure residents receive additional care minutes and improved pain management approaches. This initiative is the foundation for our new Wellness Calendar that will be delivered by our specialist Wellness Registered Nurses (RNs).

Our Wellness Calendar

The Wellness Calendar will include group exercise with physiotherapists, pain management classes and massage therapy with our Wellness RNs. Plus, other offerings like stress relief and mindfulness with the use of massage, music, aromatherapy, mediation and more.

The Wellness RNs are newly recruited to deliver a specific outcome, separate from our other nurses who work on clinical needs in the households.

Embracia’s Wellness Program provides clinical, medication and allied health support to manage pain in residents. It is a holistic and evidence-based approach to providing the best environment for residents and achieving positive outcomes for their physical, social, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.

Getting to know residents personally and their different and changing needs. Nisha has been a key figure in developing the new wellness calendar and looks forward to delivering the new services for residents.


Chandra has worked in aged care homes for almost for eight years now. Her journey started working as a Personal Care Assistant while she studied to be an Enrolled Nurse and eventually Registered Nurse.

Because of her extensive experience in each role, Chandra understands every level of care the residents receive. Chandra looks forward to providing holistic support to the Embracia Moonee Valley home. It’s an opportunity to apply her expertise to an innovative new program in the home.

More to come

The Wellness Calendar is a fantastic new initiative in both the Embracia Moonee Valley and Embracia Reservoir home. Nisha and Chandra will provide extra support and get to know each resident individually. This way we can deliver even better care and pain management plans for our residents. The full calendar of services will be released shortly and run Monday-Friday every week. Keep a look out for more updates on our new initiative and all the great work are Wellness RNs are doing.
