When Jane Seaholme's mother Phyllis moved into a nursing home, it was at her mum's insistence. Ms Seaholme's mother soon realised that she couldn't stomach the food. After Jane went public to media about her mum's experience in two nursing homes, she setup a petition to mandate staffing levels and skills.
This is the speech that Jane presented to the Royal Commission's Community Forum in Maidstone, Victoria, on Friday the 3rd of May. Jane has also made a detailed submission to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.
