Research shows rural aged care shortfall

A lot of media coverage in recent weeks has surrounded nursing homes, but a lot of that has tended to focus on metropolitan locations. But a recent study has found that rural aged care needs to be made more accessible. La Trobe University researchers have submitted a report to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety outlining some of the shortfalls of aged care markets in rural and regional areas.

The Daily was joined by Dr Clare Wilding, one of the authors of the submission, to discuss these findings.
