Older people will be allowed to stay in their homes longer and receive care there if they choose, rather than moving into a residential facility, because of a large funding boost in response to the aged care royal commission report

Two coalitions of aged care peak groups on Monday released their formal responses to the royal commission, urging the government to commit to a total overhaul of the system. #agedcare  #auspol 

Sky News Political Editor@aclennell  says the federal government is poised to ignore a “key” recommendation of the Aged Care Royal Commission and not implement an aged care levy in next month's budget.

Given the number of people we know have been assaulted in the aged care system from the royal commission into aged care, these comments are even more disgusting:

1 in 3 Australians in residential aged care and home care services have substandard care, Royal Commission reports—providing over 140 recommendations to address declining quality of care for older people in the country. @SophCousins  reports.

The Royal Commission into aged care has left many seniors petrified of ending up in nursing homes. Advocates say the stories of abuse and neglect have left many retirees stuck in their tracks, refusing to consider care facilities but with no back-up plan.

"Recessions kill the vulnerable." And yet, there is little in this budget to really support them. Sources within aged care royal commission tell me the lack of urgency re: nursing homes is "an extremely concerning" statement on value of older Australians.

Tucked away in volume one of the aged care royal commission’s final, eight volume report is a damning account of government apathy that could only ever be found in federal attitudes to aged care. And maybe climate action. Or JobSeeker. Or... More AM news:

The Royal Commission’s COVID-19 report confirms, the Morrison Govt had no plan for COVID-19 in aged care. This isn’t just a failure, it’s a national tragedy that has cost the lives of more than 660 of our Mums, Dads & grandparents.

BREAKING: Morrison SLAMMED by Royal Commission into aged care A Special Royal Commission report found the Morrison Government was at fault for the extraordinary number of aged care deaths.

You thought it, now we know. Large, private nursing homes are the worst performing in Australia according to world-first research commissioned by the aged care royal commission. Government run homes are the gold standard. My piece:

Remember when Scott Morrison called the Royal Commission into aged care and I asked him about cuts to the aged care funding instrument and he denied it? Well have I got a story for you.

Today the #AgedCare  Royal Commission was told that Australian aged care residents account for some 70% of all #COVID  deaths - making us one of the worst in the world. So where was the plan? "What they found is really damning" - @SquigglyRick . #TheDrum 

It is no accident there is a Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality & Safety. The sector has been neglected by government & leaderless for years. The system is under-loved, understaffed, underfunded. My thoughts on the aged care crisis exposed by COVID:

Scott Morrison has already called a royal commission into aged care. It delivered an interim report in Oct/Nov and almost ~nothing~ from those recommendations have been listened to or acted upon. They are privatising more! Why would we trust govt with a bushfire RC?
