It's Time To Fix Aged Care

After years of inaction, we finally have a plan to fix the crisis in aged care. The Federal Government have committed to implementing critical recommendations of the Royal Commission including staff ratios, RN 24/7, improved wages, funding accountability for providers and more.

Finally, we have a Federal Government that is committed to reform and has a real plan to fix the systemic issues in aged care.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and the Australian Labor Party (ALP) have committed to change in aged care including the requirement for registered nurses on every shift, in every facility 24 hours per day; mandated minimum number of care minutes and staff; improving wages for aged care workers; ensuring funding is tied to direct care and creating a general duty of care for all residents; and mandatory food quality standards for residents.

The ANMF will continue working with the new Federal Government in developing and delivering real solutions which can ensure fair and equitable outcomes in health and aged care for all Australians.
