Aged Care Royal Commission: Daughter’s cry for help

A MILDURA woman shared the heartbreaking moment she started to think if her mother died “things would be better” with the Aged Care Royal Commission yesterday.

Elaine Gregory was one of seven witnesses at Mildura Arts Centre (MAC) who provided evidence on the first day of the three-day public hearing, which will look at the needs of family, informal and unpaid carers for elderly Australians.

Ms Gregory, 59, discussed the struggles she faced when she became a full-time carer for her elderly mother after her father died from cancer in 2006.
