Honouring all aged care workers

7 August 2023

This year, Aged Care Employee Day was an opportunity to honour and recognise the important and wonderful work that happens within aged care all across Australia. It’s a day for all aged care providers to join together as a collective and express their appreciation on a national day.

At SCCQ, we have over 1,100 staff offering direct and indirect care and support across all of our services. Our people work as nurses, personal care assistants, drivers and volunteers, or in cleaning and laundry, catering, maintenance, leisure and lifestyle, administration, management and more – all serving our most vulnerable with courage and compassion. This year, as a small token of our appreciation, our staff enjoyed some edible chocolate flowers.

Even in the midst of challenges, everyone strives to be present, care for and support not only the residents and families in our care, but one another. We really do have a remarkable group of people who collectively enable us to deliver wonderful aged care services to our communities.
