Aged and Community Services Australia, the leading association for the aged care industry, has awarded La Stacey Baramy of St Basil’s Aged Care NSW/ ACT as the 2021 NSW/ ACT Employee of the Year in an online event on Tuesday 26th October.
The 2021 ACSA Aged Care Awards Employee of the Year category recognises the dedication and contribution of an individual employee in the delivery of services to older people. The recipient is someone who has excelled in the care of older people, demonstrated initiative in their workplace, and helped to strengthen and inspire their colleagues.
Spiro Stavis, Acting CEO of St Basil’s Aged Care NSW/ ACT explains, “I am extremely proud to have La Stacey achieve the title of 2021 NSW/ ACT Employee of the Year by ACSA.”
Over the last seven years, La Stacey has played a leading role at St Basil’s as General Manager of its Miranda Home that encompasses a facility supporting 101 nursing home residents and occupants of independent living units.
Having achieved over 22 years’ experience across the aged care and hospital industries, La Stacey has created a joyful home at Miranda. She supports and leads her team well across the Home’s every aspect, which inspires her team to go above and beyond.
“La Stacey’s years of robust experiences have flowed through to the team who deliver excellence in care and lifestyle programmes for our cherished residents,” says Mr Stavis.
“The culture that La Stacey has nurtured at our Miranda home is that of a positive community spirit, and an environment that is genuine, supportive, compassionate, lots of fun, and provide quality caring.”
The announcement of La Stacey’s win came as a total surprise to her and left her feeling shocked, yet delighted by the recognition received from her aged care peers.
