All Australians are being urged to reach out on Friday 7 August to people they know who work in Aged Care and help to recognise the positive contribution that these people 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 the 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 careworkers to the care co-ordinators and administrators, to the case managers and residential care facility workers, this day is to recognise the entire workforce.
Aged Care Employee Day is an official day, registered with awarenessdays.com. It is proudly led and co-ordinated by Leading Age Services Australia (LASA), the industry peak body that Care With Quality is a member of, and very involved in.
Individuals and employers wishing to take part can find information and resources on the Aged Care Employee Day website: agedcareday.com.au
