We neglect the people who care for our parents and our children. Carers are undervalued in our community and each day head off to try to achieve the impossible. The aged care sector is totally underfunded and broken ‘Dem system is a strain and a mess’ (by Kabaka Pyramid Can’t Breathe). It is placing the frontline carers under extreme pressure and it must be breaking carers emotionally.
What is the point of a balanced budget if we break carers and the best we can give to our parents is a life of waiting to die.
To those carers on the frontline – thank you.
Let’s hope that the royal commission will see some real changes to help you climb the mountain each day.
