Get ready to thank a hard-working aged care employee
Aged Care Employee Day is only a month away, which means it’s time to start thinking about – and thanking – the hard-working people who look after older Australians.
The fourth annual Aged Care Employee Day, an initiative of the Aged & Community Care Providers Association (ACCPA), falls on Sunday 7 August this year, and ACCPA Interim CEO Paul Sadler says that “superhero” workers have gone above and beyond the call of duty in dealing with floods and the continuing coronavirus threat.
“Our staff have faced the most challenging of conditions during this pandemic and were tested to their limits with the COVID-19 Omicron wave over summer. Many lived on site to continue providing essential care to their loved older residents while colleagues were struck down with COVID or forced to isolate.
“We want our residents and clients, their families and friends, to join us in saying ‘thank you for a job well done’ and recognise the hard work of aged care staff in caring for our loved ones.
