Fix the crisis in aged care

We demand that the Government takes action immediately to address the crisis and support the Our Turn to Care campaign’s plan to fix aged care:
1. More time to care.
2. A fair pay workforce.
3. A quality workforce.
4. Funding that meets needs.
5. Home care that cares.

Go to www.ourturntocare.org.au to find out more.

Why is this important?

We are family members, older Australians, and workers in aged care and we are campaigning so that every Australian can have a dignified life in retirement. We believe that quality care is directly linked to quality jobs. Care workers should have enough time to do their jobs, get a fair wage and be trained to deliver quality care. Aged care should be funded so care workers have enough time to provide quality care and there is transparency and accountability about how public funding is spent.


Reasons for signing

  • Lucy Kovacic
  • As an aged care worker with 20+ years experience, I can’t give my residents everything they deserve now. I go home at the end of the day knowing I’ve left things not done as I simple don’t have the time. All I seem to do, is say “ I’m busy at the moment, but I’ll be back “ Heartbreaking, no time to sit and chat anymore, so, so wrong, for most of my residents, I’m the only person they get to talk too. They, and their carers, deserve so much more !!!!!!!!
