The Aged Care Crisis will affect us all.
For far too long, New Zealand has been underfunding the Aged Care sector. It’s now become unsustainable, with residential facilities closing down right around the country. Looking ahead to 2030 and beyond, Aged Care beds will become extremely limited. And while this will directly impact our older New Zealanders looking for care, it’ll also have a huge domino effect on everyone else. From burnt out healthcare workers, to families caring for Nan at home, to kiwis facing unbearable hospital wait times, the Aged Care Crisis will affect us all.
