Aged Care Employee Day 7 August

Garden Village encourages the Port Macquarie community to honour those who care for our older Australians and say “thanks for caring” ahead of Aged Care Employee Day on Sunday 7 August 2022 (#ACED2022).

“We’re asking our community to take a moment and think about the quiet achievers and the superheroes who provide care with professionalism, compassion and dedication for our loved ones and give them the recognition they deserve,” said Craig Wearne CEO Garden Village.

“It’s been a particularly challenging eighteen months for aged care workers both in residential and home care services leaving many families and friends unable to visit loved ones in care for weeks on end.

“It often fell to the carers, the nurses and other staff to make up for that loss of family contact and become that crucial connection for frail and vulnerable older Australians.

“So in the lead up to 7 August, we ask you to take time to think of the nurses, personal care workers, chefs, cleaners, gardeners, laundry staff, activities coordinators and administration staff when you next visit a loved one in aged care and say “thanks for caring”.

Aged Care Employee Day is a national day which acknowledges the more than 360,000 people who care for and support around 1.3 million older Australians who receive aged care services.
