Report reveals workforce has lost faith in aged care reform: podcast

Close to 60 per cent of Australia's workforce say the reforms in the new aged care bills are impossible to realise in the sector's current climate.

The CompliSpace report surveyed over a thousand staff and revealed that nearly 90 per cent are expecting to make significant changes to their working lives to cope with the incoming changes.

CompliSpace chief David Griffith says there's heavy scepticism amongst the aged care workforce about the new regulations.

"There's a very high percentage that believe the reform simply won't work," he says.

"And that's really, really concerning."

He calls for a pay rise and increased funding, saying Australia only spends half of what comparable countries do on aged care.

Join Aged Care Insite in a conversation with Griffith about why over half of the workforce plans to quit the industry within three years, and whether true aged care reform can save the sector.
