Lack of Funds amounts to Systemic Elder Abuse but neither Party is talking about it : Comments

By Tristan Ewins, published 25/6/2019

With 'institutionalization' you get up when you're told to; you eat when you're told to; you go to bed when you're told to.

So!? Who really gives a rat's? People who've outlived their usefulness and are sitting alone on valuable real estate? That they may have sweated/slaved to purchase, need to be disposed of thoughtfully! Euthanasia!?

It's is all this aged cohort of demented rubbish deserves! Never mind that they built the country/everything in it, died in their thousands/sacrificed in so many other ways to protect our remaining (whittled away) freedoms/rights.

They are all used up/a useless burden that not even their families want!?

Just want them gone so their property, i.e., that not confiscated by the state? Can be divided as they see fit?

Oh, it's fine for born again committed Christians like Somo, to thump the pulpit/lectern, thunder/roar out how shameful this is!? But just meaningless pious hypocrisy of the worst order, writ large, if that's all there is! Generally speaking, all there is?

As things remain largely unchanged as for-profit aged care chases the dollar above all else! Reminds one that a recent study found it cost nearly half to keep people in their homes with adequate service provision as opposed to INCARCERATING THEM in DEATH SENTENCE aged care!

HALF!

This situation will continue unabated as long as health/home care is a nation divided against itself/able to be scapegoated by various, state federal, government agencies able to blame shift forever!

State governments will endlessly duck shove their elderly into federally funded nursing homes ASAP! To minimise their aged care costs!

Seen it exampled with mine own eyes as one VERY COGNENT ND ALERT William Riddle was frog-marched by a young intern right out of the ward, into a distant nursing home at Oaky, with a NICE DUCK POND! He owned valuable Toowoomba CBD real estate!

Again as a so-called night nurse wandered a geriatric hospital ward, with a large, club-sized, rubber covered touch as he searched through the belongings of elderly patients in his alleged care. no names no pack drill.

So many premature deaths due to head injuries suffered in a remarkable number of falls? Time that CCTV was made mandatory in all aged care!

"in depth analysis" from Runner ; The Aged Care sector needs funding for ratios, Stay-at-Home packages , training and support for Aged Care workers , a Registered Nurse in all residential facilities 27/7. Elderly people are suffering pain and indignity. And that's all you have to say.

we know Tristan only those who hold your failed marxist ideology can possibly be people of compassion. Your dig at the PM is nothing short of sicknening only worthy of the likes of the abc who love to take up your marxist causes. One day you will wake up from your dogma to find out that spending spending spending eventually leads you to the compassion now being shown in Venezualla.

To call a man who has been the PM a few months ''Morrison is a hypocrite; parading his 'Christian credentials' ' is a low snivelling marxist cheap shot. I suspect he has as much if not more compassion than you although granted you marxist mob have a mortgage on vitue signalling.

Tristan Ewins never fails to demonstrate what is wrong with the far Left of politics: he can always find a problem which, in his opinion, can easily be solved by spending other people's money. Lots of it.

Reducing taxes does not put more money in the pockets of taxpayers, according to Tristan, it will merely "lead to austerity".

The logic trails badly, however. For him, "...SYSTEMIC ELDER ABUSE...[derives from]..."...insufficient regulation and funding." Yep, right. Just what the elderly need. More regulation. And more other people's money. Of course, there's a bit of a contradiction when Tristan complains that nursing home residents are forced out of bed, showered, fed, sit around watching TV a lot, then are told when they must go to bed. That the sort of regulation you have in mind, Tristan?

Amusingly, Tristan, like many on the Left, is still promoting the policies which failed so dismally at the May election.

And he wants another bottomless pit of money equivalent to that of the NDIS. Well, that cadaverous bureaucracy is working so well, isn't it?

Just like the pink batts program, the cash for clunkers program, all of the other Rudd-Gillard half bright ideas which didn't work in practice and the sky-rocketing cost of electricity thanks to subsidies. Oops, the elderly people Tristan claims to care so much about are actually dying in significant numbers now because they can't afford to heat their homes.
