Aged Care Royal Commission

October 11, 2019

Deaf community elder Elizabeth Karn will give evidence to the Aged Care Royal Commission after lunch today (Melbourne time, 11 October).

Mrs Karn and her husband Walter said “We don’t need help with our shopping, cleaning or personal care, like others in aged care. But at the same time we feel excluded, neglected and isolated from our community because we can’t access an interpreter, a service that would mean so much to our quality of daily life. Where do we belong? When are we going to be included and accepted as being valued as other Australian citizens?”
