Seniors’ budget warning to Government

Published

This week, National Seniors joined ten other seniors’ consumer groups to warn the government not to squander the opportunity to fix aged care in next month’s budget.

The alliance of ‘consumer’ groups, which includes Dementia Australia, Council Of The Ageing (COTA), the Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN) and National Seniors Australia, released a statement outlining the recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aged Care it wants adopted in the Budget.

“Much can be achieved in the next year to give older Australians genuine self-determination, hold providers accountable for failure to deliver quality care, to treat those who need support with dignity and respect, and to enable and reward excellence,” said National Seniors Chief Executive, Professor John McCallum.
