Regis Nedlands allegations highlight need to fix broken aged care system: Greens

Greens spokesperson for Seniors and Ageing Hon Alison Xamon MLC has expressed her shock at the death of two seniors, following allegations of abuse of elderly residents at the Regis Aged Care Nedlands.

Ms Xamon extended her sincerest condolences to the families of the residents who have died.

She said changes were desperately needed to fix the broken aged care system in Western Australia and across the country.

“These people are our much-loved mothers, fathers and grandparents and they deserved to be protected from abuse, neglect and exploitation,” Ms Xamon said.
