Solving Aged Care
Aged care is broken. It is not that those who are providing care are not trying hard, or that all care is bad. It is that it is obviously failing far too often. Pressures in the system are towards cost cutting and profit - and too often this is at the expense of care. Good care is occurring in spite of the system - and not because of it.
We need a system where good care is provided because of the system and not in spite of it - where care is the best that can be provided with the resources available. Learn more
Join our conversation
Aged Care Crisis wants to get people debating and critically examining aged care. Dr Michael Wynne is initiating this aged care debate by analysing the system and setting out his ideas. He wants others to criticise them and pull them to bits, so exposing any flaws - so that we can work towards something we all want and a system which will work.
We invite people from all sectors of society to come up with their assessment of why things are failing and importantly, their ideas about how we can do better. Please get involved
