Protecting our parents and grandparents

This pandemic has thrown the safety and wellbeing of our loved ones in some private aged care facilities into sharp relief.

That's why this Budget will see Victoria step in to help cover the cost of introducing minimum staff-to-resident ratios in private aged care, with a $40 million investment to train more nurses and personal care workers.

As the primary regulator and funder of aged care, this investment also relies on the Commonwealth coming to the table.

With this additional investment, we want to make sure that same level of care and comfort extends to every Victorian living in aged care, regardless of who owns the facility that supports them.
