Our Response

McKenzie Aged Care welcomes the announcement of a Royal Commission into the aged care sector.

McKenzie Aged Care welcomes the announcement of a Royal Commission into the aged care sector, with the hope that it will lead to comprehensive action by the government to ensure the highest quality of care for senior Australians across the country, without exception.

At McKenzie, we take pride in the outstanding care and support we provide to our residents. Our culture is driven by excellence, honesty, respect and integrity. As a family business caring for families, people are at the heart of everything we do.

As an active member of the Aged Care Guild, McKenzie has long been advocating for a stronger sector. This means care for senior Australians that is personalised and world-leading in quality, and a sector that is sustainable as Australia’s ageing population grows.

We look forward to a broad-ranging Royal Commission that does not shy away from difficult issues including funding. We look forward to seeing the government’s renewed commitment to senior Australians translated into action. This includes, in the interim, continuing the reform program already underway, and the implementation of the recommendations of the 2017 Tune Review.
