With the aged care industry taking a battering following the announcement of a Royal Commission into aged care and reports of elderly abuse, the HLAC Awards are a timely reminder of the hard-working and caring people who make up the majority of the sector.

Belinda Adams, CEO SoupedUp said: “We are extremely proud to give these outstanding professionals the acknowledgement they deserve. All finalists have shown dedication and commitment to improving the quality of resident care. Those working in aged care are empathetic, passionate, caring people and most go the extra mile for their residents as demonstrated in each award nomination. Through the HLAC Awards programme, we get an opportunity to spread the word that every minute, every day, people are doing little things that count!” Adams concluded.

The HLAC Awards were proudly supported by the following key industry suppliers:


National winners were chosen by a panel of independent judges from the aged care industry, including Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia, the Maggie Beer Foundation, Care Support Network, Diver Foods and the industry’s peak body, Leading Age Services Australia (LASA).
