Thank you to all our staff.
Today we want to recognise the positive contribution all aged care workers make to the lives of our older Australians and the wider community.
Aged Care Employee Day is a national day to say thank you to you staff. You are part of more than 365,000 dedicated people who care for and support around 1.3 million older Australians who receive care and services each year.
The day is designed to celebrate each and every team member involved in the journey of caring for older Australians. From the care workers, to the cooks and kitchen hands, operations staff, cleaners, maintenance and gardening employees, to the schedulers, homes support coordinators, social activities staff, and administration teams – this day is to recognise our dedicated workforce.
We are planning to celebrate the event in person on Monday 17th August at the staff meeting.
Aged Care Employee Day is an official day, initiated by aged care provider Whiddon in 2018 and is now proudly led and co-ordinated by Leading Age Services Australia (LASA).
