THE aftermath of the fire that raged through the Quakers Hill Nursing home in November is still being felt with discussions surrounding the necessity of sprinkler systems still being dodged by the nursing home industry.
THE Home and Community Care (HACC) program is currently undergoing some reforms as part of the wider National Health Reform agenda.
YOU MAY not realise it, but the Australian Government is about to take possession of the homes of just about all older Australians who need aged care.
Regarding the Productivity Commission's report: Caring for Older Australians
I WRITE to you about the proposals by the Productivity Commission for aged care reform.
I want to talk to you about aged care and how the Australian Government wants to sell your house to pay for it.
