Aged Care For Qld Australia – John Gibson for the Senate
The Government of Australia was talking about the emerging aged care problem back in the late 1970’s and that’s 40 years ago.
Aged Care is such a broad subject to cover here. My focus is related directly to Aged Care Housing. On this issue the Governments focus has been to provide incentives for private enterprise to build and manage Aged Care Retirement Villages, obviously a very profitable and lucrative investment for the shareholders of such developments.
There are many sad stories of retiree’s being ripped off and losing their life savings through unscrupulous providers using legal tricks to deprive retiree’s from enjoying a comfortable existence and without hindrance. On balance I have found many retired couples enjoying fully the benefits of retirement village living.
For those retiree’s having never achieved the benefits of having a dream home to trade into a retirement village or the like, face a miserable existence in their old age. Public retirement villages are a must.
I will use my influence in the Senate to make Aged Care Housing a National Priority. A vote for John Gibson for the Senate will be a vote to get our Nations Aged Care needs right.
