It has been recently announced by Susan Ryan, Age Discrimination Commissioner that the aged care reform package organized by the federal government would from now be following a human rights approach, as per a recent report.
"By adopting a human rights approach, we will be able to expect services that are available, accessible, appropriate and of good quality", according to the belief of Commissioner Ryan.
The new Australian Human Rights Commission position paper dubbed `Respect and choice: A human rights approach for ageing and health' has even been introduced by him for `Living Longer Living Better'. The package was to see reforms and it is being said by Mr. Ryan that the approach would be apt for ageing and health reforms.
The reason behind the same is that mostly, sector policy focuses on priorities and goals and not on human rights. Though, it is always talked about access to services and participation should be equal for all. It is being said that it is the right of each and every elderly person that he is free to make choice, live with dignity and have privacy. Age does not limit the same.
Ryan further adds that the paper would give these people all these things with no failures often seen from time to time.
