Aged Care Employee Day

As anyone working in aged care knows, there’s not enough hours in the day. Sometimes the most important things – like saying thanks – get left out in favour of urgent tasks.

Today, however, is Aged Care Employee Day, so grab a cuppa and take a moment to read some messages of thanks from the Management Team at RSL LifeCare. After all, every good leader knows they’re only as good as their team…

On this day August 7, we say a heartfelt thank you to all of our Aged Care Employees who consistently strive to brighten and enhance the lives of the men and women that we care for every day.

The commitment, kindness and compassion displayed, day in and day out, to improve the quality of life for those living in Aged Care is recognised and acknowledged today as a united pillar of strength among RSL LifeCare’s dedicated workforce.
