A great initiative from the NSW and ACT-based provider that we are sure other operators will want to take up.
RFBI will be broadcasting its free MENTAL MOMENTS TV show every day at 10am from Tuesday, 6 October to Saturday, 10 October during Mental Health Week to highlight the challenges around mental health during COVID.
CEO Frank Price says: “We want to start the conversation about mental health challenges for people working in this industry as well as highlight the exceptional work done by our aged care workers who have been caring for those most at risk during a time when everyone is concerned for their own health.”
The show will be broadcast from Sydney into the Not For Profit’s 22 aged care homes across NSW and the ACT for their 4,000 residents and frontline workers and their families who are unable to visit the residents because of the pandemic.
The shows will also be available for free to all aged care homes nationally as well as the general public.
The show will be officially launched on Tuesday by RFBI patron Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC, Governor of NSW and hosted by Max Markson with entertainment with special guest speakers to include Federal Aged Care Minister, Senator Richard Colbeck, Alan Jones, Bronwyn Bishop, and Reach Out patron and director Ian Thorpe plus entertainers Kamahl, Normie Rowe, Rhonda Burchmore, magician Sam Powers, chef Geoff Jansz , country music star Angus Gill, opera singer Roy Mustaca, the Brent Street Performing Arts High School students and more.
The event has also attracted an impressive list of sponsors including designer brands Bulgari and Christian Louboutin, Coca Cola Amatil, Fanola, Harris Farm Markets, Lindt, Moet Hennessy, NeuRA and Mr Roses.
