Take time to say #ThanksforCaring

Just Better Care Brisbane North encourages the Brisbane CBD/North and Moreton Bay communities 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,” Managing Director Susanne Jones says.

“It’s been a particularly challenging eighteen months for aged care workers in home care services leaving many families and friends unable to visit loved ones for weeks on end due to lockdowns and inter-state travel restrictions.

“It often fell to the community support professionals, nurses, and other suppliers 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 community support professionals, nurses, cleaners, gardeners, allied health professionals and administration staff who have cared for a loved one and say “thanks for caring”.

ACED will feature a #ThanksforCaring social media campaign with videos, stories and photographs that acknowledge Australia’s aged care workers.

ACED is a national day which is registered with awarenessdays.com and acknowledges the more than 360,000 people who care for and support around 1.3 million older Australians who receive aged care services.

Individuals, employers and community members wishing to take part can find information and resources on the Aged Care Employee Day website http://www.agedcareday.com.au/
