Petition to Ken Wyatt Minister for Aged Care
Let’s fix aged care NOW!
After the revelations of elder abuse and neglect at Opal Care facilities on ABC 7.30 Report, it is time to start fixing aged care: 7.30 Report, part 1, families telling stories about Opal Care: http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/content/2017/s4712067.htm We call on the Minister, Ken Wyatt, to listen to more varied voices to find solutions. In particular, we call on Mr Wyatt to stand down Opal Managing Director, Gary Barnier, from all advisory governmental committees and consult genuine representatives of aged care residents and relatives instead. 7.30 Report, part 2, How did Opal stay accredited by the Quality Agency? http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/content/2017/s4712742.htm For Opal to continue to participate in aged care policy making is simply an insult to all those frail aged Australians and their families who have suffered unnecessarily. Minister, please show your real compassion and let’s work together to get aged care right! Our elders deserve it! Please sign our petition!

Save Goldicott House
Goldicott House is a Heritage listed property in Toowong. Used primarily as a convent for the Sisters of Mercy and a boarding house for St Ignatius Primary School, its grand history came to an end when Sister Anna Ventura, the last remaining Sister, moved out in April 2017. Built over 130 years ago, and having managed to retain its expansive grounds, despite all the development around it, it is a rare treasure. https://environment.ehp.qld.gov.au/heritage-register/detail/?id=601601 It is exactly the rarity of its sweeping grounds, specifically noted in the Heritage Register, that have made it a prime target for greedy developers. Pikos Developments purchased the property in a private tender process this year, and are already advertising it as a future aged care development on their website. http://www.pikos.com/projects.html They plan to build towers on the grounds, big enough to house 600 beds. The only access to the property is via a tiny residential cul-de-sac. To make it clear, their development would have more beds than the Wesley Hospital, which accommodates 535 patients. As it stands, the property is not zoned for an aged care development. In spite of this, Pikos have paid $8M for the site, and are advertising as if a complex rezoning and an invasive build on a Heritage listed property is a done deal. We don't think this is right, and we need your help to protect our heritage properties.
Petition to The Hon Ken Wyatt
NDIS for Everyone
The NDIS are excluding healthy individuals with a disability over 65 years of age. People who are healthy, active and want to contribute to society are being forced, through incomplete funding, to nursing homes agsinst their will. It is an unjust system based solely on age discrimination. My father's life changed on 12 July 2016. He became a paraplegic from T7 down. He has made a remarkable recovery and just wants to come home. However, with the new NDIS he is not covered and is being forced to go into a nursing home. This is not what he wants nor deserves. This should be medically assessed - not based on age only. This has affected many individuals and their families. The elderly people of Australia have paid tax all their life. I think its about time we looked after them. Now we have sold my family home and found a new suitable house there is now no packages (Aged care) for him to come home. He is stuck in a nursing home. Which is expensive!!! Help!
