Too many unanswered questions!
A higher level of training is a must. 6 weeks is just ridiculous, our elderly deserve so much better.

I work in ages care - as a PC - frontline. I see firsthand the amount of care being budgeted to our elderly - and it's disgusting. There is just no time to give the proper care needed & us care staff that care are running every single shift to do the best we can & we're all getting burnt out ourselves. The residents have to be told to wait to even go to the toilet. It's disgusting how little time we have. I wish the top notch decision makers would come and do a shift with us on the floor to see what it's really like

because obviously nothing has been done after the last one.... prefer Govt. actually do something about what is already known. Not enough funding for proper training, proper wages, for proper time allocation to each resident for care physically and EMOTIONALLY :-)

I believe this is such an important issue. Individuals in Aged Care (and other residential facilities) are so very vulnerable, especially if they have no-one to check in on or advocate for them. There have Ben instances across the world of the most appalling abuse and it is time for it to STOP everywhere. Let us make our legislation clear and tough on the subject, respect and value those who work in this field, and create an atmosphere in which all people at any stage of life can truly thrive.

I have observed the neglect in many aged care facilities. Mainly because of inexperienced and untrained staff, while the owners and operators use the residents funds on non facility activities.

There is not enough being done to look after the Elderly in Nursing Homes & Age Facilities anywhere.

There are serious concerns in the Aged Care System that needs to stop now. The recent story by Four Corners has highlighted this. The abuse & neglect of our Aged is unacceptable along with the justice system not holding those responsible accountable for their actions. This has been occurring for decades & it's time it stopped. I have a duty to ensure our loved ones are treated with respect, dignity and that they feel safe by those who care for them. Lets stand together to have our concerns heard, action is taken now & the public is kept up to date with progress.
