reopen 74 vacant beds at Glenmead Village Aged Care Facility

Dear Ministers could you please give Glenmead Village Aged Care Facility in Cairns the support it needs to reopen the 74 beds it has been closing over the last 18 months because they say they are unable to secure sufficient trained nurses and can't get the airconditioner fixed.

Why is this important?

There are presently 72 patients housed in hospitals around the region awaiting placement in an aged care facility. This does not take into account the fact that there are many people barely able to cope in their own homes. THis not only crowds the hospitals it is not a suitable place for aged people to live and it will only get worse as our aged population increases.

How it will be delivered
