The federal election is an important one for many older South Australians, including those who are:

  • experiencing a crisis in aged care or finding it difficult to navigate and access My Aged Care
  • in financial stress including because they cannot find housing which is affordable and suitable as they age
  • unable to access oral health care which is not part of Medicare
  • enduring ageism that is at the basis of elder abuse and poor aged care and that gets in the way of good health care and employment
  • worrying about climate change and wanting to do more to ensure future generations will enjoy a healthy planet
