Aged care residents deserve better.  
Our parents, our grandparents, our senior citizens deserve better.
After a lifetime of contributing to society they deserve better.
They don't deserve to live in conditions which most of us wouldn't tolerate.   They don’t deserve to live in facilities that have insufficient nursing and other staff to delivery high levels of care.   They don’t deserve to live in facilities that have inadequate access to decent medical treatment and care.   They don’t deserve to be fed meals which are unpalatable and lacking in nutrition because nursing homes cut costs to put profit before people.   They don’t deserve to spend their twilight years feeling that they are uncared for or that they are burden on society.   They are not and they deserve better.   We've seen one review and inquiry take place after another at both the State and Federal levels for years.  Nothing changes.  Only a Royal Commission will give aged care residents, relatives, nurses and carers the opportunity to reveal what is really going on and how our parents, grandparents and senior citizens are being treated.   Only through a Royal Commission will we uncover the truth about the abuse and poor care that is taking place.   Only by finding the truth can we ensure those we love will get the care and attention they justly deserve.   The Royal Commission into the Banking Industry is demonstrating exactly how this can work and in the end such an approach can force change.
We cannot wait for this or any other Government to be dragged kicking and screaming to establish a Royal Commission into Aged Care.   It must happen now and you can make it happen now by signing this petition.  By telling your family and friends about this petition.   By using the hash tag #deservebetter when you post.   Please, sign and take action now because they deserve better.
