Anglicare Australia has said that the Government’s commitment to fund pay increases for aged care workers is good news for hard working staff, the aged care sector, and most importantly, for older people.
The Australian Aged Care Collaboration (AACC) has today launched its election campaign by with a report showing the wages for aged care workers have failed to keep up with the cost of living. Anglicare Australia is a member of the AACC.
Anglicare Australia, as part of the Australian Aged Care Collaboration, is calling for action on workforce issues ahead of the next election. The call comes on the one year anniversary of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.
