resenting Issues Report 2020/21,

This landmark report is the first definitive public annual report which captures the experiences of older people engaging with the aged care system. Commonly presented issues include unwanted admissions to residential care, increased risk of abuse facilitated by COVID-19 restrictions, a lack of available assessment services and long wait times for support.

The report reflects many of the issues raised in the Aged Care Royal Commission, highlighting that more work needs to be done to improve the aged care system and that while the transformation of the aged care system has begun, it is not yet fixed, and older people are still enduring confronting experiences.
