Meet the Team

Carolina Jansen Van Vuuren

Administrative Officer

I started with Blue Care in 2017 as the Activities Officer, bringing sociable events and outings to the residents of Avalon, which I found greatly rewarding. I have now transferred to the administrative position where I can help people in a different capacity. In my free time I enjoy travelling and exploring new places. I love spending quality time with friends and family.

Dean Dennis

Integrated Service Manager

I started with Blue Care in 2018 and manage the Emerald site. I have also been a registered nurse for more than 35 years. Caring for our residents is one of the most rewarding aspects of my role. Outside of work, I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy old muscle cars and have a small collection of my own.

Donna Harvey

Community Team Leader

I have been with Blue Care Avalon since 2014. I enjoy listening to our residents’ stories and helping to make them feel special and achieve goals they have set for themselves. Outside of work I like to garden, go to rodeos and spend time with family and friends.

Gareth Rowcliffe

Maintenance

I’ve been with Blue Care since 2017. I’m responsible for landscaping, carpentry and painting. Working with Blue Care gives me the opportunity to give back to those who have given over the years. I love spending time renovating and playing sport.

Rose Chibanda

Care Manager

I’ve been with Blue Care since 2008. My role is to ensure our residents have the best possible care and to make sure they always feel at home. I love seeing the smiles on our residents’ faces after spending time and caring for them. In my spare time I enjoy reading and watching movies.
