Establishments falsify what care needs are for clients to get extra funding, without providing enough staff to ensure the claimed care needs are met. They also take on foreign staff who can not pick up on symptoms of stroke, heart attack or other issues because they have not been properly trained. They don't speak to clients and in many instances are not even showering them. Their English comprehension skills are almost nil.

The for profit aged care costs far too much for the level of care able to be given by inadequate staffing numbers to take care of rersidents and the govt merely hands out more and more millions to these places without stating the money is used for more nursing staff and raising their wages to an acceptable level rather than expecting them to work full time for a pittance as happens now.

It has only become a dirtyy word because of the media exagerating what is occurring. For every one horror story there are 1000 good stories yet none of these are highlighted nor is the issue of family neglect and blaming the government for them shirking their responsibilities
