REAL CHANGE FOR AGED CARE...
IT'S NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK.

It’s time to make sure our politicians prioritise aged care.

The Government has been too slow to act for aged care.

It’s been over 10 months and counting since the Royal Commission handed down its final report, and there is still chronic understaffing, no staff ratios, no laws for an RN 24/7, and no transparency or accountability of funding.

Help us put pressure on the politicians and demand aged care reform this election. It’s not too much to ask.

BREAKING NEWS
