Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi is calling for a new, temporary visa category for carers, which would allow elderly Australians to stay in their own homes rather than be shunted off to expensive aged care facilities.
The Daily Telegraph reports, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced a $100 million funding boost to allow older Australians to enjoy better access to support services such as food preparation, gardening, podiatry and physiotherapy.
The PM says the cash injection will help provide basic support for older people who need assistance to keep living independently.
Senator Bernardi has told Paul Murray Live on Sky News improving the care of our elderly is important, but we can do better and more cost effectively.
