IT'S TIME TO FIX AGED CARE...
IT'S NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK.

Finally, we have a Federal Government that is committed to aged care reform.

Thank you for your support for aged care.

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

The ALP has committed to funding legislating mandated staffing ratios in private aged care facilities, improving wages for the depleted workforce and making sure taxpayer-funds for providers are tied to direct care for residents.

The ANMF congratulates Mr Albanese and his team on winning government and we look forward to working with them in developing and delivering real solutions which can ensure fair and equitable outcomes in health and aged care for all Australians.
