The National Aged Care Alliance (NACA), a coalition of 52 national organisations in aged care, commends Labor for committing to invest in the aged care workforce, however, is disappointed by the lack of real and decisive action by both major parties to get aged care right for everyone
The absence of any mention of aged care in last night’s Leader’s Debate is profoundly offensive to the more than 125,000 older Australians, and the more than 1,000,000 members of their families, waiting for a home care package, many of whom die while waiting.
On the 18 May, Australians will choose between Scott Morrison’s ‘a fair go if you have a go’ pitch or Bill Shortens’ ‘a fair go for everyone’ action plan. But is there really a ‘fair go’ for older Australians?
COTA Australia has welcomed today’s release by government of new legislative principles requiring aged care providers to publish information on the breakdown of costs in home care packages, and also abolish separately charged administrative charges by 1 July 2019.
Leading seniors’ advocacy body, COTA Australia, warmly welcomed the Government’s announcement it will bring forward funding for 10,000 more home care packages, providing support and care to older Australians at home – bringing the total number of aadditional packages over the last year to 40,000.
