Every corner of Australian Aged Care holds untold stories of inspirational individuals. These are the stories of people who commit themselves to this industry and those in their care.
From care workers and their colleagues, to unpaid carers and volunteers devoting themselves to the care of 1.3 million older Australians each and every day, to our older Australians receiving care and their families – here are their stories, told in their words
There's so much I love about my job. I get to help people every single day. Many people ask me or say ‘I don't know how you do that job’ but I just can't even begin to tell them how amazing our job is.
I'm so passionate about my role and put 110% in because I truly believe these people deserve it. And if I can put a smile on people's faces in the process that makes it even more worthwhile !
It’s good to talk with residents and to know what they want. We work hard for them as if we would work for our parents. Because we work every day with them they become like our family.
