Aged care services support older people to continue enjoying life in their own homes or in supported residential communities. But since Malcolm Turnbull and Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt cut aged care funding by more than a billion dollars, service providers have been struggling and standards could slip.
Every Australian should have a dignified life in retirement. Every older Australian should be treated with respect. Every older Australian receiving aged care should know that the people who care for them can be there for them whenever they need, for as long as they need.
The Turnbull government has slashed a billion dollars from aged care funding - that's a cut to the time aged care professionals have to provide necessary care. It must be restored. Sign the petition here.
