Let’s face it, 2020 highlighted many things. None more than the spotlight that was shone on Aged Care. Whilst generally Aged Care in Australia is some of the best in the world, the reality for many in Aged Care, or for those with loved ones there, is a long way off how we intended to spend our last years. This gap in care had already been identified, long before Covid19 hit, and a Royal Commission was already well underway. In July 2020 the Royal Commission Into Aged Care Quality and Safety, released the findings of a 10,000 person study that revealed that people are prepared to pay for high-quality care when they are older, whether it by co-contributing to the cost or through taxes.

You don’t have to deprive yourself of all those holiday goodies and certainly don’t get stuck in guilt if you’ve eaten too much. Eat leisurely, and savour the holiday goodness. After which, try taking a short walk to aid digestion and burn a few calories – every little helps.
