Dear AVACS residents, family members and staff,
This year, in June 2023, will mark another important milestone in AVACS nursing home history. Our nursing home will be in operation for 5 years and now we have achieved a full 100% occupancy and we have been able to help many frail, lonely and socially disadvantage elderly people in the community.
Our AVACS nursing home has fully passed and met all 8 Accreditation Quality Standards conducted by the Australian Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission. We have received Good Rating by the Australian Government to indicate the good quality of care across 4 key areas of performance such as Compliance, Quality Measures, Residents’ Experience and Staffing. This is a very good news and a great achievement for all of us. Our main objectives are caring for the residents with our best ability, treating them with respects and providing them with choices and dignity.
On behalf of AVACS Board, I would like to thank you all AVACS staff for your diligent and hard working to care for our residents. The Board has appreciated all AVACS staff who worked so hard and loyal to AVACS.
I also would like to thank you all residents and family members for your understanding, co-operation and support for AVACS over the past 5 years.
As the winter this year is approaching soon, it is time for having your influenza vaccine and Covid 19 booster vaccine to protect everyone in the nursing home, especially to protect our beloved residents. I would like to remind all staff, residents and family members to get your vaccine up to date before visiting the nursing home. Thank you very much for your co-operation.
Dr. David Minh Tang
