It’s time to care about aged care

Over the past two decades, successive governments have failed to act on more than 20 independent reports signaling the need for major reform in aged care.

We cannot allow this to continue.

We all deserve to age in comfort and with dignity, wherever we live. Yet that right is being denied to some 1.3 million Australians who rely on our aged care system.

Over a generation, the needs and expectations of our ageing parents and grandparents – and those who care for them – have exceeded the resources made available to them.

As a country, we are failing our older citizens.

It’s time for change. It’s time to fight for a world-class, rights-based aged care system that meets the needs of older Australians now and into the future.

It’s time to care about aged care.

Sign the petition

I, the undersigned, believe that it is time to care about aged care in Australia.

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety has delivered its final report which reveals that many older people are not receiving the care that they need and deserve, and that the Australian community expects. Over twenty previous reports calling for change have largely been ignored. We cannot allow this to continue.

I encourage my Member of Parliament to support comprehensive reform of the aged care system, and Government action to ensure all older people are supported and enabled to live their lives with dignity.
