Sep 15, 2013 — Hi everyone, exciting news, we now have over 2000 signatures and that's fantastic, however still a fair way to go..... we are after 10,000.

Alarming story by ABCs Margot O'neill. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-08-13/aged-care-understaffed-as-nursing-home-patient-numbers-rise/4884056 This is happening as we speak and will be our future if we do not act now. Please ask four of your friends to sign.

Please share

Warm regards,
