Was a couple of nights ago...maybe Thurs/Wed night.
A lot of staff are underpaid. One nurse/carer I volunteed alongside 2 years ago said her 16 y.o. daughter got paid more than her in retail!
The mum has to feed, wipe people's bums, shower includung after faecal accidents, wake up and dress resis which can be back breaking work on yiur own and get them off to bed when they don't want to at 7pm after eating at 4.30-5pm, assess them and pick them up using inflatible mattress if they fall, make sure they wear head gear, and keep it on, if they are susceptible to falling over,use hoists for immobile ...all for $22 an hour....her 16 y.o. was getting $24 as a junior shop assistant she said.
I personally think it was a big mistake to privatise aged care and farm our elderly out to care for profit souless run, strictly business orientated care where people are just a $8 a head meal cost per day...it used to be $6!
