Dear AVACS residents, family members and staff,

Christmas and New Year 2024 is fast approaching and another year gone by so quickly. Our nursing home has been in operation for 5 years and now we have achieved a full 100% occupancy and we have been able to help many sick, lonely and socially disadvantage elderly people in the community.

Our AVACS nursing home has continue to keep up with the new Quality Standards and Requirements set by the Australian Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission. Among a few Nursing Home around Australia, we have achieved 5 Star 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, loyalty 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.

Recently, the NSW Health Department has alerted that the Covid 19 infection cases are on the raise again around Christmas and New Year time and recommended that all residents and staff need to have a new Covid booster vaccine against a new strain XBB 1.5 if you had the previous vaccine more than 6 months ago. So, I would strongly recommend all residents and staff to have a new Covid 19 booster vaccine to protect everyone in the nursing home, especially to protect our beloved residents. I would also like to remind all 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
AVACS President
