About Lucia

"Since 2013 I have been working as a case manager for a specialist service for people with acquired brain injury, where I have gained excellent understanding of the needs of adults with acquired brain injury and how the impairments impact on the daily living activities. In 2014 I became an approved Lifetime Care case manager, and since then I have been providing services to individuals diagnosed with a brain and/or spinal cord injury.

I provide a person centred approach to assist individuals achieve their goals enabling them to live as independently as possible in the community; working together with the individual, their family as well as with the multidisciplinary team involved, ensuring good coordination of services. I am a team player, who works very closely with other professionals and services providers involved in the rehabilitation and treatment of individuals.

I have experience working with high complex clients, who present behavioural difficulties, mental health, domestic violence and dysfunctional family dynamics.

I have been working with young adults, adults and elderly for the last 10 years, having great skills to engage and establish good working relationships which assist obtaining better outcomes.

I am currently undertaking my Master in Social Work at the Australian Catholic University. I am a member of the Australian Community Workers Association and continue to be registered as a social worker in England (Health & Care Professions Council- HCPC).

I can speak English and Spanish.
