Sunday 7 August is Aged Care Employee Day, a day to recognise those who work in the industry, including the more than 1900 people employed with leading South Australian aged care provider ACH Group.
ACH Group CEO Frank Weits said Aged Care Employee Day is an important day not only for the sector, but the wider community.
“Almost every Australian will cross paths with aged care services within their lifetime and therefore many will meet, or be cared for by, the passionate people in the sector,” he said.
“Aged Care Employee Day celebrates everyone who is involved in supporting older people who receive aged care services and recognises the incredible work they do.
“I thank all the staff at ACH Group for their care, commitment and passion.”
ACH Group will celebrate Aged Care Employee Day delivering gifts to each of its employees.
Mr Weits said due to the growing demand for aged care services and business transformation there are many job opportunities available.
“There is still the common misconception that a career in aged care is solely around healthcare, however within our organisation of more than 1900 staff there are employees from a wide range of professions from human resources to finance, procurement, property development, IT and marketing,” he said.
“Careers in aged care are rewarding, offer learning opportunities and stability,”
