Who's pledged to support ratios in aged care? 

Aged care workers are bravely speaking out about the chronic understaffing in our aged care facilities, but we need our federal politicians to act. 

Our federal politicians must commit to real change in aged care through the following:

  • Legislated nurse-to-resident ratios
  • At least one Registered Nurse on site at all times  
  • Greater funding transparency
  • Improved wages and conditions

See if your local federal member has pledged to support these key aged care reforms below.
