“We want to unite providers under a shared vision to enhance the wellbeing of older Australians through a high performing, trusted and sustainable aged care sector. Both Melissa and I are committed to championing transformative initiatives within the sector in order to enhance services for the benefit of older Australians.” 

Melissa said communication with all parts of the aged care sector would be a priority moving forward.

“We need to listen to and collaborate with our members and key affiliates in order to achieve change in our sector. We are particularly committed to supporting member feedback on issues of strategic importance including new and emerging challenges across policy, advocacy and aged care reform that affect the sector both locally and nationally,” Melissa said
