SAVE PUBLIC AGED CARE

Public aged care facilities in NSW are under threat of privatisation. Despite the Minns’ Government’s pledge to "put an end to privatisation in NSW," the largest publicly owned aged care facility in the state, Blue Haven in Kiama, is slated for sale next year.

The recommendations of the Royal Commission into aged care quality and safety were crystal clear: government-run facilities provide a higher quality of care. The sale of facilities like Blue Haven will undoubtedly see a decline in the quality of care for residents.

Government run aged care services also ensure properly regulated pay and conditions for workers. According to the United Services Union, aged care workers risk losing up to $700 per week in the event of privatisation.  

We need to stand up for government-run aged care services to safeguard the well-being of both older people and aged care workers.
