We acknowledged the diversity of cultures in Australia and in the room, and, we paid respect to our migrant elders, traditions and their interests, as well as those of the people we care for. We acknowledged the diversity of skills, as well as the diversity of ages in our industry.

We acknowledged our key sponsors; Provider Assist, HESTA, GEEK, and Prime Medical Placements... and our Raffle Prize sponsors; LeeCare Solutions, Underdale Cellars, Villis Cafe and City-Bay…

The Award nominations for 2017 were submitted by residents, family or friends, co-workers, immediate supervisors and site managers, to name a few. We were thrilled to share we had received the highest number of nominations for these Awards and we thank everyone who nominated someone. In their best words, they carefully explained to our judges their nominee’s contribution to the aged care industry; demonstrating either:
