Ms JO HAYLEN (Summer Hill) (19:55): Last week I had the pleasure to meet with home-care workers to talk about the Our Turn to Care campaign. Supported by United Voice and the Health Services Union, the Our Turn to Care campaign is run by family members, older Australians and workers who are fighting for increased funding for aged-care homes to ensure an enjoyable life for older people. It includes calls for increased time to care, including one extra hour of care per resident per week; increased staff-to-client ratios; fair wages; access to training courses at TAFE; and, importantly, the Government to ensure the sector provides quality care and high standards and protects and supports both staff and clients in aged care. Australia currently has 2,800 specialised aged-care homes that provide care to over 207,000 people, with that number expected to grow to over 250,000 in the next 10 years. Without proper funding aged-care homes cannot be expected to continue to meet the basic requirements. I thank the incredibly dedicated home-care and aged-care workers whom I had the pleasure of meeting.
