Australian Greens Proposal for aged car services

The Australian Greens had proposed a single funder for all aged care services as part of 
a new discussion paper launched today.


Australian Greens health and aged care spokesperson Senator Rachel Siewert said that next week's
budget must include new funding for aged care services to put in place the building blocks for aged
care reform.                          

Senator Siewert said "We are calling for an additional $100m to go directly into improved wages
and conditions for care staff to address the crisis in skilled care workers, plus a once-off investment
of $15 million for a national trial of teaching nursing homes and better links between health and aged
care systems.”
