Our CEO Luke Westenberg said of the Awards, "Aged care is about people – people who care, people who receive support, people who change lives.
The ACIA awards recognise all the wonderful work that goes on across our aged care sector every day – work that might stay under the radar, but that means the world to older Australians.
It is wonderful to have the opportunity to highlight examples of the amazing practice by ACIA members across the aged care sector, and to hold up examples of the people who really put the “care” in aged care. This year we received our highest-ever number of nominations – underlining the extent of excellence across the sector.
Congratulations to all our finalists and winners!"
