Event description

Description

We are a group of private citizens with experience working in the aged care industry who have begun a campaign for urgent reform at both state and federal levels, with a particular focus on residential care.

Following the release of the Senate Inquiry report: Future of Australia's aged care sector workforce, we want to see the committees recommendations urgently implemented. We also wish to see further reform undertaken to aid an industry that is rife with reports of abuse of consumers, poor living and working conditions for consumers and staff, and inconsistent legislation, inadequate funding and weak oversight by industry watchdogs.

We all want most of all to see vulnerable consumers being given the care that they deserve, and to see the funds allocated to them being used appropriately in the provision of quality, individualised care as is promised by the industry buzz-words “person-centred care”.

We want to work with families before terrible situations like those exposed recently in Oakden occur to anyone else, and we want to assist our valuable and hard-working aged care workers with the stress they face every day when trying to deal with understaffing and a chronic lack of resources.

You can read more about our petition at https://www.communityrun.org/petitions/urgent-aged-care-reform

We would love to see you attend and support our important cause at our Adelaide rally.
