Budget reply brings a sense of hope for older Australians and aged care workers01 April 2022
A delegation of 10 Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF) aged care members watched on in Federal Parliament last night to hear Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese announce in the Budget reply that if elected, the ALP would implement the critical recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.
The measures the Opposition said it would implement if elected included:
- 24 hour registered nurse care in every nursing home;
- A mandated minimum of 215 minutes of care per resident per day;
- Funding real wage increases for aged care workers;
- Ensuring accountability across the sector.
Mr Albanese also pledged to mandate standards for nutrition in nursing homes.
