If you care about aged care tell us. We’re listening.
On Saturday we held a national aged care phone-in, for aged care staff and community, to share your stories. Thank you to all those who called in, we had an overwhelming response.
The 2016 Budget cut $1.8 billion from aged care and one provider has already signalled this could mean shedding registered nurse jobs.
We know that as aged care nurses and AINs you often feel your hands are tied because of understaffing and lack of resources. More still needs to be done for aged care by all parties.
If you or someone you know who has a story to tell was unable to call, you can still fill in the survey online until 5pm on Tuesday June 21 by going to icareandivote.com.au.
We only have two more weeks in the election campaign to make aged care a high profile issue. Will you tell us your aged care story?
Because if you don’t care about aged care, we can’t care.
