Aged care failing dementia sufferers

Minister for Mental Health and Ageing Mark Butler today released a new Alzheimer’s Australia report on feedback received from older Australians, their families and carers through the national conversation on aged care reform. More than 1,000 people attended 16 Alzheimer’s Australia consultations nationwide.

The Alzheimer’s Australia report makes for sober reading. It is clear from the feedback received through the conversations that the issues that continue to beset the provision of care for people with dementia have not been given the prominence they deserve in the debate about the quality of aged care.
