Thread - please RT: For three months the Turnbull Government has deliberately delayed the release of the latest data on the number of older Australians waiting for home care. Today we've found out why. #auspol 1/4
The data has finally been released and revealed more than 108,000 older Australians are now waiting for care - this includes more than 88,000 older Australians waiting with high needs, many with dementia. 2/4
We've already learned that many of these older Australians are waiting more than two years for care and sadly with the number of people waiting for a home care package growing these wait times will only grow. 3/4
The question for the Turnbull Government is this: how can it find $17 billion for the big banks but fail to deliver one new dollar of funding for aged care. Older Australians deserve better. 4/4
