Mercy Community welcomes Federal Government investment in aged care

Janet Rhodes - Mercy Community’s Executive General Manager Residential Aged Care - joined a selection of like minded change makers at Catholic Health Australia's ‘Budget Week Dialogue’ to discuss the future of the sector.

A message from Janet Rhodes, Executive General Manager, Aged Care Services

As advocates for compassionate and quality care for older Australians, Mercy Community applauds last week’s budget announcement allocating significant funds to enhance the aged care sector.

The $111 million commitment to bolster the capability of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission is a crucial step towards ensuring the safety and well-being of our elderly population.

The Independent Capability Review highlighted areas for improvement within the aged care system, and this funding will enable the implementation of necessary reforms in order to uphold the highest standards of care and accountability across the sector.

Furthermore, the allocation of $88.4 million to attract and retain the aged care workforce is a testament to the value placed on the dedicated individuals who provide essential care to our elders.

Investing in staffing solutions not only supports the well-being of our aging population but also recognises the invaluable contributions of aged care workers.

In today’s digital age, technology plays an increasingly vital role in delivering efficient and person-centred care.

The allocation of $1.4 billion to upgrade technology systems and digital infrastructure is a forward-thinking investment that will streamline processes, improve communication, and enhance the overall quality of care provided.

At Mercy Community, we believe that every older Australian deserves to age with dignity, respect, and access to high-quality care.

The commitments outlined in the budget reflect a positive step towards achieving this vision, and we look forward to seeing these investments translate into tangible improvements in the lives of older Australians and their families.
