Over the past two decades, successive governments have failed to act on more than 20 independent reports signaling the need for major reform in aged care.
We all deserve to age in comfort and with dignity, wherever we live. Yet that right is being denied to some 1.3 million Australians who rely on our aged care system.
Over a generation, the needs and expectations of our ageing parents and grandparents – and those who care for them – have exceeded the resources made available to them.
As a country, we are failing our older citizens.
It’s time for change. It’s time to fight for a world-class, rights-based aged care system that meets the needs of older Australians now and into the future.
It’s time to care about aged care.
Community Care TASMANIA proudly supports the Australian Aged Care Collaboration of over 1000 aged care providers who are currently urging the Australian government and community to #CareAboutAgedCare.
The Australian Aged Care Collaboration’s aim is to ensure there is political will to make the systemic changes needed to meet the needs of older Australians now and into the future.
