In an aged care sector under scrutiny and facing increasing resourcing challenges, providing good quality care remains imperative, according to Benetas CEO Sandra Hills OAM.

This Saturday, 7 August, is Aged Care Employee Day, and Victorian aged care provider Benetas has identified five outstanding employees to take out the third annual Benetas Aged Care Employee Day Awards, held every year to acknowledge significant contributions made by employees for the benefit of customers.

The Federal Government announcement of $17.7 billion for aged care services in response to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety has been heralded as the single largest investment in aged care and the largest in response to a Royal Commission in Australia’s history.

Benetas welcomes the release of the Aged Care Taskforce’s report and urges the government to implement the changes quickly to support a fairer and more equitable aged care system.
