Traralgon Aged Care promote and embrace indigenous culture.

Residents, families, staff and local community guests joined together at Traralgon Aged Care to promote and embrace indigenous culture within their home and the local community.
Aboriginal Elder Cheryl performed the ‘Welcome to Country” cleansing, smoking ceremony and young Aboriginal men from Community College Gippsland presented the home with the Aboriginal flag and shared their Aboriginal art with residents and guests.
The morning included the raising of the Australian and Aboriginal flags for the first time at Traralgon Aged Care by Councillor Darren Howe, Traralgon RSL President Ron Culliver and the College students. We are proud to have the Australian and Aboriginal flags flying together as a permanent welcome to all in the local community.
Cameron McPherson, MACG Managing Director and Lauren Muir, Traralgon Aged Care Director of Nursing, spoke of the company’s ongoing commitment to community engagement and the significance of cultural recognition.
