7 August, is the official day to thank, honour, recognise and celebrate the hundreds of thousands of people who work in the aged care industry across Australia.
We want to say thank you to the managers, nurses and care workers, to the cooks and hospitality teams, to the drivers, cleaners and laundry employees, to the volunteers, to the allied health staff, to the leisure and lifestyle officers and administration teams.
You make a positive difference in the lives of all Australians that receive aged care services. The work you do in this challenging but rewarding industry is incredibly valuable. We recognise the importance of your roles and will continue working with aged care peak bodies, providers and employees to assist in transforming the workforce and careers.
Also, congratulations to the Whiddon Group for starting the great initiative of “Aged Care Employee Day”. To get involved in celebrating the day or to find out more, please visit agedcareday.com.au
