Ms Shepherd has called for more attention to be paid to the aged care sector during the Federal election campaign.
“This issue isn’t going away. How can the government sit back, and watch loved ones suffer, watch staff hit breaking point and not do anything about it? We are calling for this to be a major political issue come May.
“Our loved ones and staff deserve so much more, and the ANMF will continue to seek for the major political parties to commit to our Aged Care Campaign this election,” Ms Shepherd said.
