Aged Care Employee Day 2020

by KinCare — 20 August 2020

This significant day is all about celebrating and recognising the hundreds of thousands of people who work in the aged care industry across Australia.

‘Aged Care Employee Day’ celebrates each and every team member involved in the journey of caring for people who receive aged care services – from the nurses and care workers, to the allied health professionals, cooks and hospitality teams, to the drivers, cleaners and laundry employees, to the volunteers, to the leisure and lifestyle officers and administration teams.

Through their work, these people often develop meaningful relationships with our older loved ones – becoming defacto family members in the process.

Aged Care Employees Day puts these everyday heroes in the spotlight, celebrates them, and highlights the many different roles of those involved in the aged care journey.

This year’s theme for Aged Care Employee Day is #ThanksForCaring. The theme recognises each and every team member involved in caring for the 1.3 million older Australians receiving care across the country.
