Older Australians helped build this country. They worked hard, paid their taxes and raised their families.
They rightly expected that the Federal Government would support them in their frailer years. That’s what they deserve, that’s what they’ve earned, after a life contributing to their communities and to Australia.
But the Morrison Government has neglected older Australians and the aged care system for the best part of a decade – it's a national disgrace.
If we want to change aged care in this country for the better, then we need to start by changing the government.

Labor has a plan to put security, dignity, quality and humanity back into aged care.
Only an Albanese Labor Government will treat aged care residents with the respect they deserve.
