Aged Care

This campaign aims to build a better aged care system with an emphasis on improving access to home care.

Our Recommendations

Dentistry is essential for overall health, but it’s mostly privatised. A Seniors Dental Benefits Scheme would improve access for pensioners with limited means and those in living in residential aged care.

We are calling for a trial of changes to pension and government payment rules to give a greater incentive to work in the Health Care and Social Assistance sector.

We care calling for an exemption from the aged care assets test for home care recipients when downsizing to more age-appropriate housing.
