Thank you, Anglicare Southern Queensland aged care staff!

“From across our services, we wanted to thank our aged care staff and those of our industry colleagues for showing up day after day to care for our parents, grandparents, siblings, friends and relatives, and our community’s most vulnerable. It isn’t easy and it takes a special kind of person to care for older Queenslanders. To do so with love, care, and patience in such challenging times is a testament to the dedication and genuine compassion of aged care workers. Thank you. You are truly appreciated,” say Anglicare staff and Community Services Commission members
