They are out there everyday, just as anxious and stressed like the best of them, but our Tamworth care workers continue to put their brave face on and take care of the most vulnerable in our community.
That's why Tamworth and Armidale's integratedliving has created a campaign called 'Wave of thanks', calling communities to wave when they see one of their branded cars or uniformed workers.
People can also record a video waving and post it on social media using the hashtag #waveofthanks, or use a Facebook frame.
As a worker you don't really know what you do has that much of an impact until someone says thank you, it's a heartwarming thing.Jessie-Lee Sanders
Jessie-Lee Sanders is a care worker for integratedliving in Tamworth, and says even though it is incredibly stressful with so many unknowns, she has never felt prouder to do what she does.
"I find it so rewarding, I love making my clients' day and leaving them with a smile on their face.
"As a worker you don't really know what you do has that much of an impact until someone says thank you, it's a heartwarming thing," she said.
She is doing everything to ensure the safety of those she visits, as well as herself, measures which include downloading the CovidSafe ap.
"I know a lot of the clients don't have a mobile, so at least I know if I am out with a client, I know they are safe."
But while there are things she is looking forward to at the end of the pandemic, some things will never go away.
"The stress of coronavirus, and you know, not having to wear gloves and masks, but not having to worry about who might have it, what you might pick up, that stress gone would be great.
"I'm relaxed though, because if I do, I feel like my clients will stress and I don't want that.
"But has been a real collaborative effort, we have all been working as a great team. I think it's brought us closer together, its wonderful."
Integratedliving CEO Catherine Daley said Ms Saunders' sentiment captured perfectly the feeling across the board.
"While not visible to many, the collaborative response across the whole organisation, staff and clients, making sure people get the services they require, it's been amazing," Ms Daley said.
"I am proud of the resilience of our staff ... the focus on kindness and compassion.
"That's why saying thank you is so important."
