WORD ON THE STREET

What do you think about the Gov­ern­ment plan to hold a royal com­mis­sion into aged care? Noon, New Farm Park By So­phie Chirgwin

The Courier-Mail - - LETTERS -

JENNY CALDOW 54, un­em­ployed, Algester It is well and truly needed and long over­due. More needs to be done for them. They need look­ing af­ter and are worth more than the way they’re be­ing treated.

CATHER­INE HEL­LYER 45, ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tant, Padding­ton It is prob­a­bly long over­due and def­i­nitely needed. I think peo­ple don’t tend to lis­ten enough to the el­derly.

MATTHEW O’NEILL 23, ex­ca­va­tor, West­lake I think hold­ing a royal com­mis­sion is a great idea. It’s about time some­thing was done for our se­nior cit­i­zens.

LORENZO IEZZI 62, project man­ager, Caloundra I think there have been too many ques­tions raised in the past. The el­derly should be able to grow old with dig­nity.

LAU­REN FISHER 37, com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager, Moorooka It’s good if they take a de­ci­sion and put it into ac­tion. I think some­thing def­i­nitely needs to be done, but I have very lit­tle faith any­thing will.

ALEX CAD­DIE 51, so­cial worker, West End I think there does need to be an in­quiry. With staff-to-res­i­dent ra­tios, em­ploy­ees are over­worked and can’t spend qual­ity time needed with the el­derly.
