FED: Aged care funding boosted ahead of inquiry

Date: Sun 10 Feb 2019


On the eve of a royal commission into Australia's aged care industry that is widely expected to uncover some ugly truths, the federal government has announced more fresh funding for the sector.

But Labor says the $662 million windfall is simply too little, too late.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Sunday announced every Australian living in residential aged care will have an extra $1800 spent on their care by June as part of the funding, with $320 million set to be rolled out to residential facilities in the coming months.

The royal commission into aged care quality and safety will start hearing evidence in Adelaide on Monday, with commissioner Richard Tracey calling it a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a better system of care for elderly Australians.
