Nathan Klinge: Veterans and the aged care system
Posted on: Mon 13 Jan 2020
Nathan Klinge says that veterans are ageing quickly and entering aged care sooner than the general population.
100 years ago, physically and mentally damaged troops returning from WW1 faced severe homelessness and unemployment issues. Contemporary Veteran Nathan, now CEO of RSL Care SA, tells us how support services have evolved since then; what RSL Care SA’s involvement in that has been; and in particular what 2020 holds for both male and female Veterans entering Aged Care.
