The inquiry into aged care services continues on. Having a relative in care is not without times of anguish for the person in care and for the relatives. Aged care services can to be weighed up against care in the family's own home.
Much can be averted if the relatives themselves take care of the older generation where possible.
This is not suggested as if choice of professional care is slack but to literally avoid significant worry, pain, monitoring and attention to arrangements. In many instances the older generation is more easily kept in communication while ever they remain with family.
