Aged Care Crisis to Be Tackled

It has been recently revealed in a report that there are now new steps being taken by Julia Gillard for the purpose of overhauling the elderly care system, that can work for the betterment for the ones in need. There is soon going to be the introduction of the ‘user pay’ system that shall work towards making facilities better in the field of elderly care.

It was further added that this is all being done in aid of helping the people who are about to enter their old age in the time to come as well. There is need for effective efforts to be made for properly placing strategies for the correct sort of care to be taken of these people in the time to come. The elderly need not be left in hope of help for even the most basic necessities in life.

"We are a little disappointed that the package falls short of giving older people an entitlement to aged care. We hope the proposed five-year review of the package will be the opportunity to revisit this issue”, said Ian Yates, the Chief Executive of COTA Australia.

It remains to be seen as to how many of these plans are actually going to work for the betterment of the old age care system in the time to come, and how it shall affect the lives of the people in the time to come.

It was further added by Rohan Mead, from the BCA Healthy Australia Taskforce that that it was slightly disappointing to see how there was not a total commitment to the plans seen by the commissions.
