Petition to the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales.

In the light of the Royal Commission, the Covid pandemic, and the issues currently facing the aged care industry, we request that you urgently enact legislation to:

  • Increase the salary for aged care workers to reflect the value of the work and to ensure retention
  • Increase staffing levels to reflect the complexity of the work, especially with people with dementia
  • Provide funding for specialist nurses in dementia, end-of-life care, and wound care
  • Provide adequate funding for on-going education, including for staff replacement
  • Provide funding for Nurse practitioners and salaried medical officers as a complement to GPs
  • Reset the relationship between the Aged care Commission and RACFs to be more encouraging and less punitive.
