We honour each and every one of our aged care employees on August 7th.
This includes the nurses and care workers, allied health professionals, hospitality teams, drivers, cleaners, volunteers, lifestyle officers, case managers, administration staff and many, many others who take care of over $1 mil older Australians in their own homes and 185,000 in residential care.
These are the dedicated, caring people whom we entrust with our elderly relatives and friends when we are not there to care for them ourselves. Throughout their work these individuals interact with our loved ones, forming meaningful relationships and friendships that ensure that they are cared for, comforted, and supported every day.
So to all of our aged care employees #ThanksforCaring #AgedCareEmployeeDay
