We Really Need to Talk About Aged Care ... (But We Won't)

Over the past 23 years, there have been 19 major inquiries, investigations and reviews into aged care services in Australia, culminating in the current Royal Commission. Every one of those has told us – as future inquiries, investigations and reviews will continue to tell us - that we really, really need to talk about aged care. But we don’t. And we won’t. And we probably never will. In this episode, Darren Wake talks about just how dysfunctional residential aged care is in Australia and why there is one elephant in the room that everyone is too embarrassed to confront. It’s an issue that, by itself, creates the largest single barrier to a constructive and productive dialogue about aged care services across the country, both now, and in the future. And if you’ve worked in aged care, you already know what it is.
