It's a tricky proposition for many people, given the widely-reported under-staffing of those places. My wife says she'll never go into a home, though she's prepared to try a retirement village. I haven't considered the question yet, despite the advancing years.

Andrew Albanese made the point yesterday that Morrison cut well over a billion dollars from the aged care budget, and is now returning half of that and making it seem like something new. Not a new tactic.
