Show your support for those who never stop caring

Did you know that 360,000 dedicated individuals provide vital care and support to our 1.3 million older people? Aged Care Employee Day, on Sunday 7 August, is an annual celebration supporting and honouring Australia's residential, home and community aged care workers.

It takes a special person to work in aged care and the way our dedicated carers, nurses, and support staff make a difference every day makes them truly extraordinary. This extends beyond those we care for and about. It also provides our wider community with reassurance that their loved ones are safe, respected and living their best life.
