Voters asked consider aged care Royal Commission
The chief executive of a local aged care home has asked voters to pay regard to the Royal Commission into Residential Aged Care when casting their vote on Saturday.
"We would hope that aged care is front and centre as one of the key issues the parties should be addressing," said Blue Wave Living chief executive Mr Matt Downie.
"I would encourage all who have an interest in aged care to review the commitments the relevant parties are making in respect to our Industry.
"The simple reality is we have been an industry that has been under-resourced financially for many years.
"This was highlighted in the findings of the Royal Commission.
"There needs to be a serious commitment by the Commonwealth to address this, so as we can continue to grow and provide quality aged care services for our elders in our community," Mr Downie said.
