Anglican Care Celebrates Aged Diversity

On March 24 Anglican Care held a BBQ to celebrate the diverse characteristics that make them the dynamic community based organisation it is today for Harmony Day.

The Anglican Care residents and consumers have a variety of interest, customs, beliefs and backgrounds and it is this diversity that makes Anglican Care such a great organisation.  Together with respecting everyone who calls Australia home – Harmony Day for Anglican Care is also about celebrating all that makes our residents and consumers the wonderfully unique people they are.

To officially kick-off Harmony Day, Anglican Care held a ‘Masterchef’ style boss cook-off between CEO, Mr Colin Osborne, and General Manager Property Services, Gerard Bowen. With a menu that matches the occasion, Mr Osborne cooked crocodile for residents while Mr Bowen put his meatballs recipe to the test with the discerning crowd.

Mr Colin Osborne said it was important for Anglican Care to celebrate its values of equality, authenticity and inclusivity.

“Our residents and consumers come from all religions, cultures and backgrounds, and just because they now reside in an aged care facility doesn’t mean those characteristics or qualities that make them who they are, should change.

“We embrace all that makes our residents and consumers unique and we work hard to cater for their specific needs,” Mr Osborne said.
