While the rest of Australia stays home our aged care industry is among the few essential services continuing to operate around the clock, caring for our most vulnerable population.

The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has turned our houses into safe havens, parents into educators and highlighted those working on the frontlines as our unsung heroes.

We are reminded of the adage: “Not all superheroes wear capes”. As the community strengthens we have learned some heroes don masks and gowns, some carry brooms and mops, and some keep the lights on in our essential services, including aged care.

The nurses, personal carers, cleaning staff, lifestyle therapists, maintenance, laundry staff, cooks, allied health professionals and administration staff are the heroes helping more than 1.2 million Australians access aged care services and continue to remain safe, healthy and connected.

Give a virtual shout-out to all the heroes supporting our seniors by sharing your message, letter, video or artwork below.
