Is Money Enough To Fix Aged Care?
Think Business Futures
It’s been a big week since the Treasurer handed down the Budget 2021, but the biggest story- and certainly biggest handout- was in the Aged Care Sector. $17.7 billion dollars has been allocated to making a once in a generation change to a sector that has been plagued by horror stories from the Royal Commission, underpaid staff and limited career opportunities.
But is almost $18 billion dollars enough when the funding is set to be drip fed over a five year period? The Treasurer announced the plan as ‘practical’, but what do the experts think?
