Every story matters

The government needs to know why young people shouldn’t be pushed into aged care. We can help you tell your story to the Aged Care Royal Commission.

Are you younger than 65 years old and…
• live in a nursing home?
• are currently living in hospital or rehab?
• have lived in a nursing home at some stage in the past 5 years?
• at some time in the past 3 years have been told that you might have to live in a nursing home, but didn’t end up having to?

Or do you have a family member or someone you care about in one of these situations?

If so, you have an important story that the Royal Commission into Aged Care needs to hear.

Tell Your Story

We have prepared a guide to help you write and send your submission to the Royal Commission.
