Aged care reform leaves older citizens unconvinced

Rebecca Sullivan

The aged care sector has applauded the Gillard Government’s sweeping changes to the aged care system, after it announced a new $3.7 billion package of reforms.

These changes were announced in response to a scathing 2010 productivity commission report, which called for a major overhaul of the sector.

$1.2 billion will be injected into aged care over the next four years, yet some older citizens are far from sold.
