The Royal Commission

On September 16 the Prime Minister announced the establishment of a Royal Commission into the aged care sector, with the main aim of investigating the quality of care provided to older Australians. The Royal Commission came alongside a statement that the number of Aged Care complaints received had risen by 23% over the past 12 months.

Although the media may present the situation as being quite daunting, the Aged Care industry has welcomed the announcement of the Royal Commission with open arms. With 45 percent of Aged Care facilities in the red, we can’t wait for the Royal Commission to reform aged care!
