About the Awards

The inaugural Hunter Aged Care Achievement Awards were launched in 2010 by CatholicCare Hunter-Manning CEO Joseph McCarthy, to give the community, families, and aged care organisations the opportunity to nominate staff and volunteers who show a passion for the older person as part of their everyday work and provide outstanding care.

The awards aim to recognise employees, trainees and volunteers working in the aged care sector in the Newcastle, Maitland, Lake Macquarie regions as well as the Hunter, Upper Hunter and Port Stephens regions.

The awards were launched by CatholicCare, however they invited all aged care providers from the region and the community to get on board and nominate their staff, volunteers or someone they knew who had provided outstanding care to either themselves or their family.

In April 2011, the Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle transferred its aged care services (operated by CatholicCare) to Little Company of Mary Health Care (LCMHC), for operation by Calvary. The Hunter Aged Care Achievement Awards were also transferred across to Calvary, to ensure every day heroes working in aged care continued to be recognised year after year.


All information regarding the awards, nomination categories, selection criteria, the judging process and nomination forms can be found on the Hunter Aged Care Achievement Awards' website.
