They kept your heart beating. They sang to your baby in special care. They lifted you up when times were tough. They made sure your mum felt safe and loved when you couldn’t be there.
They are nurses, midwives, healthcare professionals and early childhood teachers. They work in aged care giving dignity to aging Australians, or in the community sector offering hope, care and services to those who need it most.
These are Australia’s unsung heroes. Their work is priceless.
And yet we so rarely get a chance to say ‘thank you’.
