Celebrating International Nurses Day during COVID-19
11th May 2020
With International Nurses Day today, we are taking this opportunity to celebrate the important work of all our frontline workers in protecting the health and well-being of our clients, residents, and their loved ones each and every day.
All around the world, nurses, personal carers and allied health workers go above and beyond to support people, whenever and wherever they need it. Something that’s never been more apparent than during these past months.
For this we have created a short thank you video from all of us in supporting roles, as well as a number of clients across the organisation.
At Benetas, we employ approximately 400 Registered and Enrolled Nurses, 17 Allied Health Workers, 150 in Home Service assistants, and roughly 850 Residential and Respite Frontline Employees, and we work alongside many more frontline workers throughout the year.
Each and every one of you in these roles support thousands of members of the Victorian community each week with the provision of essential services; whether that be providing care in their home, working in one of our residential aged care homes, providing care at our community health clinic in the Macedon Ranges, or simply just talking to them.
The range of expertise that you all bring to our clients is exceptional. With one thing in common, the deep commitment to forging meaningful relationships with those who you support - listening and responding to their individual needs.
We join many of our clients and their loved ones in saying thank you, particularly given the difficulties you have worked through these past months. We'd particularly like to acknowledge the diligence and indeed personal sacrifices that so many of you have made to ensure you continue to provide the care that so many of our residents and clients rely on.
While, frontline workers cannot do it alone, on International Nurses Day – we express our greatest gratitude to you all and hope to spread the word of how valuable and valued your work has been.
From all of us at Benetas, thank you.
