The Australian Federal Government has cut Aged Care funding by $3.1 billion since 2014. The cuts have significantly reduced funding for services to the frailest older Australians.
Today, aged care is a vital issue for some 3.6 million Australians aged 65 and over. In 10 years, this number is projected to increase to almost 5 million, an increase of 37 per cent.
We are calling for a commitment from all political parties to reverse the $3.1 billion of cuts to aged care. Funding cuts that impact the accessibility, affordability and quality of care for many older Australians.
