    "We work in an industry where we're here to care for others, and often forget to take care of ourselves".
    (RN, RAC)

     
  • "I feel like I'm constantly taking care of other people and other people's needs, and if I'm not also taking care of my own needs, I can start to grow resentful"(CW, Home care)

     
  • "If I was to burn myself out, then I'm really not going to be a benefit. If I go to work tired and stressed out, I'm not going to give my all to what I need to do, to look after my residents"(PCW, RAC)

  • "On top of COVID, on top of reform, there is the day-to-day business which in aged care is all about essentially living until death and dying is your companion".
    (RN, RAC)
