The Department of Health, together with our medical experts and colleagues across the country, want to thank all workers across our aged care sector.

Every single day your professionalism and commitment to caring for senior Australians is appreciated.

Over the past 18 months in particular, through COVID-19 outbreaks and necessary pandemic restrictions, your diligence and dedication to caring for senior Australians, and their families and loved ones, has been simply inspiring. Your work has been extraordinary.

Tomorrow is Aged Care Employee Day. This date is an opportunity to recognise the great work of aged care workers across Australia and to thank you for your care.

We are thankful for everyone across our aged care sector who is working hard to provide care for senior Australians. This includes personal carers, nurses, chefs, allied health staff, cleaners, gardeners, laundry teams, administration staff and everyone who works in our aged care sector.

We know, from conversations stretching across Australia, that your hard work is being recognised by many Australians, not only by us.

Please pass on our thanks to your colleagues and staff in the aged care sector.
