ONE WEEK TO GO: Celebrating Aged Care Forum

Posted 29 August 2018

The Celebrating Aged Care forum event, The balance: taking care of the workforce too, will be held on Thursday 6 September in Melbourne.

The event is a state-wide celebration bringing together nurses, volunteers and health professionals from the aged care sector. This year's feature is comedic act Georgie Carroll, who weaves together her razor-sharp wit and humour and her experience as a nurse.

Speaking at the event is Mark Bunn, leading expert on health and professional performance, and a former AFL footballer and three-time best selling author, who will speak about achieving your natural high.

The Celebrating Aged Care Award winners will also be announced for:

  • Leadership Award
  • Volunteer Award
  • Passion for Aged Care Award.

The balance: taking care of the workforce too is part of Celebrating Aged Care Week, held from 10-15 September and acknowledges the contribution of Victoria's aged care workers.
