Aged care reform stalling amid lacking funding
There are fears an overhaul of care and funding into aged care will stall without significant investment on the back of the aged care royal commission.
National Seniors Australia chief executive Professor John McCallum says the situation in some cases remained “deplorable”.
“The recommendations of the royal commission were based on … a lot of hard work from a lot of people to show what needs to be done, but we don’t really have a way of funding that at the moment and that means nothing will happen until there’s money to do that and that is concerning me very much,” he told 6PR Mornings.
