Today Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced that the Royal Commission into aged care homes will be extended by a further 3 months, with the final report due to be released on the 26th of February. In this announcement Morrison also unveiled a $326m package for the aged-care sector which will allow 6,100 older Australians to live at home for as long as possible.
