Fun at facilities for Aged Care Employee Day
01 October 2019
On Wednesday 7 August 2019, aged care providers across Australia celebrated Aged Care Employee Day. This is a special day set aside to thank and honour those who work in supporting the aged community. St Vincent’s Care Services facilities and services took up the invitation to do something special for their staff and volunteers, to recognise the incredible work they do every day in service of our residents and clients.
Many facilities such as SVCS Bardon and SVCS Werribee held barbeques or special lunches, and ordered pizzas or provided other treats for staff working night shifts or off-site. SVCS Southport celebrated with some fun team building activities, including an obstacle course and wheelchair races.
While staff at SVCS Maroochydore dressed up as superheroes, reflecting the way they are perceived by their colleagues and residents for the work that they do.
