Stinging report on aged care

National Seniors released its Access Economics-commissioned report on aged care on Wednesday.

In an interview with ABC's 7.30 Report, National Seniors chief executive, Michael O’Neill, said the system is in decline and if ageing Australians are to be cared for properly, urgent reform is needed.

Providing for quality care in later life is a key concern of Australians as they age.

To ensure the provision of accessible and sustainable high quality care in the future requires both informed debate about the aged care system and considered policy planning.

The report covers current issues in aged care such as quality of care, infrastructure requirements and alternative models of funding.

National Seniors welcomes your thoughts on the report and the changes you believe need to be made to the aged care system to ensure quality care in the future. Contact National Seniors.
