Our annual Thank You For Working In Aged Care Day is coming up soon on Wednesday, 2 September.
We’ll be visiting aged care facilities around Tasmania on that day, so keep an eye out!
On this day every year, HACSU and our community acknowledges the hard work of aged care workers – day in, day out and year in, year out.
This year in particular, aged care workers have gone absolutely above and beyond in the most trying circumstances we’ve seen, caring for older Australians in the face of huge risk to themselves and their families.
We know the aged care system in Australia is broken. It doesn't adequately provide for older Australians or for the workers who care for them, and we demand change.
This Thank You For Working In Aged Care Day we’re telling the government that Real Thanks means Real Change – it’s not enough to say 'thank you' although thanks are always appreciated.
Real thanks means making real changes to improve aged care for everyone.
