Here is the Parliamentary Library analysis showing @SquigglyRick was right:
Shoula from Frankston saw these posters up today and knows enough is enough for aged care- she’s our newest volunteer and will be talking to people in Seaford this Saturday about ratios in aged care - will you join us? #AgedCare.
Govt review finds aged care workers are underpaid by 15 per cent. Modelling in submission to that same review shows it would cost up to $ extra every year to close that gap and increase direct care hours..
Ken Wyatt on the 2016 Budget cuts: “That is controlled by Treasury” Who was the Treasurer: @ScottMorrisonMP.
Australian PM @ScottMorrisonMP has announced a Royal Commission into #agedcare facilities, saying elderly people should be able to live with dignity.
If Captain Muppet wants “religious freedom”, it’s only fair that religions be freed from ANY AND ALL public service contracts, so community diversity cannot sully their beliefs. No chaplains in state schools. No job network, #agedcare or social service contracts. #auspol.
I recently had the privilege of meeting Peg - one of the first 26 women who joined the RAAF during WW2. Older Australians deserve security when they’re vulnerable and in care. That’s why we announced a Royal Commission. Info here >.
#agedcare needs to be brought back in to the mainstream health care system with nursing homes annexed to hospitals and run by hospital administration both public and private. #auspol.
The @propertycouncil welcomes the govt’s announcement of a royal commission into aged care. Most seniors housing residents will e transition to the aged care sector and it’s important that #agedcare works for older Australians..
Aged care workers expose routine neglect and mistreatment tonight on #4Corners.
Morrison says he did not cut $ billion from aged care sector in 1996. But he did. Industry said at the time the cuts would reduce standards of care. Morrison was not moved & proceeded with cuts. The only lie is his own. #auspol #agedcare.
How would you describe the state of #agedcare ? Industry professionals provide some startling answers, tonight on #4Corners.
Well its in his Budget Papers 2016 $ Billion Cut from Aged Care #Auspol #InterimPM.
Really then Why did you cut Funding for Aged Care its here in your Budget Papers 2016 $ billion cut #Auspol.
The #AgedCare Royal Commission must cover abuse in settings where older people with disabilities are congregated - sign this urgent petition to ensure we’re included in the terms of reference.
We already know WHAT is happening and again after @4corners airs tmrw we will see the extent and the depth of neglect and horror being inflicted. The RC will expose WITHOUT political or vested interference WHO is doing it and HOW they are doing it then JAIL them 4 it. #AgedCare.
@Greggrow @sallymcmanus Agree Greg. I left the aged care sector after 20+ years angry and disillusioned by having to be responsible for the care of 40+ residents each shift. Our elderly deserve better. Increase funding to attract better qualified and caring staff. #4Corners #AgedCare.
Here is the Parliamentary Library analysis showing @SquigglyRick was right:.
Massive thanks to the 4000+ people who responded to our @abcnews callout to share their stories of #agedcare in Australia. This #4corners and the royal commission announced today is because of you. For full coverage & links to sign up to our newsletter:.
While we welcome the announcement of a royal commission into #agedcare, this will only tell us what we already know - that we need legislated staffing #ratios! Gathering the evidence is essential but what will be the tipping point for REAL ACTION?.
The LASA team gets around .... today delivering a single #agedcare quality framework (SACQF) masterclass in Grafton NSW. Big thanks to @TheWhiddonGroup for hosting. Go here for details of upcoming SACQF masterclass opportunities #strongvoicehelpinghand.
Older Australians deserve the best care possible #agedcare.
To everyone who works in #agedcare taking care of our elders, we say #ThankYou.
We all want a world class #agedcare system. A lot of work has been done to ensure our aged care system is supported to deliver quality care. However, there is much more work to do, particularly around workforce development & a sustainable funding.
US (aged care) residents receive twice as much care from trained nurses and more than a third more nursing care overall SMH article on my aged care staffing ratios bill #agedcare #auspol.
My Government will conduct a parliamentary inquiry into aged care. #qldpol #agedcare.
