CHEERS: From left, Joan Kroker, Nicky Thornton and Melba McGlynn celebrate Age Care Employee Day at Horsham’s Sunnyside Lutheran Retirement Village.
Retirement village residents organised and treated staff to a special afternoon tea.
The annual recognition day provides an opportunity to celebrate the thousands of people who work in Australia’s aged-care industry.
Sunnyside village residents helped in all aspects of the day, from planning the menu and hand-making gifts for staff, to running a competition and providing several speeches. About 100 residents and staff included representatives from all care areas, from nursing and personal care through to maintenance, lifestyle, hospitality, administration and domestics.
