Big Numbers in Aged Care
- 1.2Million elderly Australians in the aged care system
- Accommodation costs of up to $2m for a room
- Ongoing fees of up to $120,000pa
- Over 5,000 complaints received in the submissions to the Royal Commission
Now there’s even more big numbers coming out of the Royal Commission.
After 97 days of hearings and over 10,000 public submissions, the RC has handed down 124 recommendations for consideration.
It remains to be seen whether the Government adopts a large percentage or a small percentage of those recommendations.
