Submission to Senate Community Affairs Reference Committee Inquiry into the Future of Australia’s Aged Care Workforce
Catholic Health Australia has been a strong advocate for reform to give older people choice and control over the aged care services they receive and to ensure access by all older Australians needing care, irrespective of their cultural background, financial means or where they live. The successful implementation of these reforms, and the quality of future services, is dependent on the availability of a skilled workforce which is responsive, culturally attuned and up-to-date to deliver best practice aged care. It is also dependent on the continued availability of informal carers.
