$537m for Aged Care in Response to Royal Commission

By November 25, 2019 Aged Care, NDIS

Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Monday said, “I want to assure all Australians that we will deal with these issues as you would if you were standing in my shoes today,” Mr Morrison said. “I know quite precisely the sorts of things that you are thinking about at the moment when it comes to the treatment of your loved ones in aged care.” He called the royal commission a  “very uncomfortable” experience as it revealed many shortfalls in the treatment of vulnerable Australians.

The new measures include providing better medication management and dementia training for nursing home staff and introducing new targets to remove younger people with disabilities from residential facilities.

Promised was  10,000 home care packages, at a cost of $496.3 million, and includes better medication management and dementia training for nursing home staff, and introducing new targets to remove younger people with disabilities from residential facilities. The question for the Prime Minister and his government today is: Will older Australians desperately waiting for care get their home package any sooner”
