END THE AGED CARE LOTTERY

Getting access to aged care right now in Australia is a matter of chance. Depending on where you live you will either get a service to help you stay independently at home or a bed in an aged care home. Or you won’t.

This is because our system is based

on an

arbitrary numbers game rather than the need for care. Aged care services are rationed. Only 113 of every 1000 people over the age of 70 get the support and services they need. If you are number 114 you miss out.

Government determines how many of the places within the 114 are home care packages and how many are residential care beds. This means that people also can’t choose where they receive the care they need. And it’s why people have to wait for aged care services at home and older people sometimes have to move far away from loved ones to access an aged care bed. This is why there is so much pressure on partners and families to fill the gaps.

As part of the National Aged Care Alliance we are supporting the campaign to End the aged care lottery. You can do so too by visiting the campaign website and signing up to the campaign and emailing your local candidates to ensure that aged care is an election issue.
