Aged Care Employee Day 2021

This weekend marks Aged Care Employee Day, a time of giving thanks and recognition for your ongoing commitment and passion for our residents and clients.

Everyone in aged care has a challenging but rewarding role in enabling the best life for the people we serve.

On behalf of the Board, Executive and Management of Catholic Homes, I deeply thank all employees for your dedication and the positive difference you make at work and in the community.

Please take some time this week to celebrate your efforts as each site arranges treats for staff to enjoy on Friday and Saturday.

Aged Care Employee Day on Saturday August 7 is an initiative of aged care peak body Leading Age Services Australia in acknowledgment of the 360,000 aged care staff around Australia.

Its theme of ‘Thanks for Caring’ recognises individuals and teams involved in caring for the 1.3 million older Australians receiving home care or residential care services.

More details on this worthwhile initiative are available at agedcareday.com.au.

​​​​​​​Please enjoy your day!

Chief Executive
