Submission on Aged Care Program Redesign
Jan 28, 2020, 11:21 AM
In this submission to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, Anglicare Australia calls for a change to the philosophy that underpins aged care. This must begin by addressing how we perceive ageing, and how as a society we treat our older people. We must confront ageist attitudes and practices. We also welcome the Royal Commission’s scrutiny of marketisation in the aged care system.
