After reviewing over 400 submissions, some of which were described as ‘disturbing’, the Royal Commission found that the Australian aged care system
‘fails to meet the needs of its older, vulnerable, citizens. It does not deliver uniformly safe and quality care’
The commission determined that the system requires ‘fundamental reform’. Whilst these findings were concerning and widespread it’s important to note that there are also many hard-working and dedicated people within the aged-care system – but it is the system itself that is being reviewed.
