STAR Community Services is a proud finalist in the 2018 HESTA Aged Care Awards in the Outstanding Organisation award category.

“We are proud to be recognised as one of the top organisations in Australia that are making an outstanding contribution to aged care in Australia. Much of the credit goes to our brilliant team- both staff and volunteers- who work tirelessly to ensure that our community’s elderly receive quality care and support to enjoy an independent lifestyle,” said Ms Patsy Wilshire, STAR General Manager.
