Pastoral Care Manager – Sandra Keay
In the early part of 2015 Sandra returned to Australia after any extended time in New Zealand to take up the pastoral care role in the newly built St Stephen’s Hospital in Hervey Bay. Sandra came to the role after many years experience in the health field, having worked in both private and public hospitals in administration and management positions, as well as general practice.
Sandra’s passion to serve, along with her strong faith in God drew her into church ministry as a Business Pastor in a team ministry church, a role that provided many opportunities to care for people both in the practical ways, ie budgeting advice, food bank, children’s and women’s ministry, as well as providing spiritual help and care. It was while supporting a close family member requiring palliative care that Sandra felt the call of God to consider chaplaincy work. Further intensive training followed and Sandra then volunteered as a chaplaincy visitor in Wellington Public Hospital, which prepared her the for the role at St Stephen’s.
For relaxation Sandra takes advantage of the beautiful beach walks and cafes Hervey Bay offers as well as dabbling occasionally in the quilting scene. Currently Sandra is undertaking further study related to Dementia Care. A listening ear for staff, patients and family members, Sandra works closely with the teams to support holistic care to all.
