Historic Aged Care Reform Passed

UnitingCare Australia has hailed today’s successful passage of the Living Longer Living Better package of aged care reform bills through Parliament as an historic moment for older Australians.

Speaking immediately after the bills were passed, UnitingCare Australia National Director, Lin Hatfield Dodds, gave credit to all parliamentarians who recognised that Australia’s aged care system was broken and resolved to reform it.
