After 20 aged care reviews in 20 years, capped off with the Royal Commission, we know the shortcomings of the sector that have allowed for neglect of the older people we serve. We’ve never had a clearer vision of the way forward, nor greater impetus for change.
The Government has committed to substantial investment and overhaul of the system, and the public will hold both the Government and Providers accountable for the overwhelming task of enacting the change we need. The burden of responsibility is significant, as is the purpose of delivering care with dignity and respect.
