At Ozcare we like to think we do things with heart.
And it’s important that we do, since we help the people in our society who need it the most. They are seniors, veterans, carers, people living with dementia, disadvantaged Australians, people with disability, mental illness or health condition, the homeless, women and children experiencing domestic violence, and people facing drug and alcohol addiction.
We give them the support they need to continue staying in their own homes, or provide a warm and welcoming home with 24 hour care. We enable them to live free from domestic violence, to find and maintain a permanent home, to make the most out of their lives and achieve their goals and dreams.
It takes a special kind of person, and organisation, to provide the vast range of services we do, and it’s for this reason we’re launching our Ozheart program, to recognise the very biggest hearts in Ozcare and the exceptional work they do.
Each month we will recognise the accomplishments of our employees we hear about all the time but don’t get the chance to recognise formally. They’re the staff who make a positive difference in the lives of their residents, clients, and colleagues.
They are part of a care team who work together to ensure that every single aspect of a client’s care is considered; from carers, support workers, nurses, dementia specialists, allied health professionals, and hospitality staff to the wonderful administrators and management who support them.
We invite everyone to share their experiences of an Ozheart and help us recognise Ozcare employees who are doing exceptional work no matter what their job description.
Who to nominate
The Ozheart program is designed to recognise Ozcare employees who embody the spirit of our organisation:
- Constantly going the extra mile
- Providing exceptional care or doing exceptional work
- Displaying a positive attitude to health and wellbeing
- Helping their colleagues and other departments
Each month, starting in February 2017, we will announce the Ozheart of the Month, who will receive a special award ceremony in their honour surrounded by their colleagues, clients, and family. They will also receive a $250 gift voucher and an Ozheart award pin to wear with pride, along with a video of their special event.
How to nominate
We accept nominations from clients, Ozcare employees, and the public at any time through the Ozheart nomination form. At the beginning of each month, a winner will be chosen from the previous month’s nominations and published on our blog, Facebook, and throughout our organisation. Sign up to our mailing list to be notified of the winners.
