The Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA) Aged Care Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements and contributions made by ACSA Member Organisations, teams and individuals in the aged care industry throughout the year.
This year, there are five award categories, with winners from each state and territory forming the list of nominees for ACSA’s 2021 National Aged Care Awards.
St. Basil’s Homes NSW/ACT has been named as a State Finalist in not one but two (2) categories of the 2021 ACSA Aged Care Awards. La Stacey Baramy, Director of Care & Community has been named as an Employee of the Year finalist whilst St Basil’s Aged Care NSW/ACT Community Services is a finalist in the Provider of the Year category.
The Employee of the Year award recognises the dedication and contribution of an individual employee in the delivery of services to older people. The employee must have excelled in the care of older people, demonstrated initiative in their workplace, and helped to strengthen and inspire their colleagues.
The Aged Care Provider of the Year award recognises a residential, community care or retirement village provider that demonstrates outstanding leadership, management, workforce culture, innovation, communication and excellence to the sector.
