Statement From Aged Care Minister

Statement attributed to Richard Colbeck, The Aged Care Minister, regarding our story on aged care worker pay increases.

The Australian Government is committed to a sustainable aged care sector and the delivery of high quality care to older Australians and recognises that the foundation for the provision of quality care is a skilled and supported aged care workforce.

It will consider the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety when it hands down its final report in February.
