    ''You want the govt to house every sad case in a nice hotel? Must be nice living in unicorn farts land where things don't need to be paid for''

    you might want to think this one through

    it costs several hundred dollars a day to run an aged care bed - probably about 500 a day - if we go on the means tested costs per day to the residents - up to $471 a day

    so - if the government is stumping up almost 500 a day to keep this woman in high care accommodation

    would it not be obviously cheaper, better and a better investment to put her in a $300 a day hotel

    cheaper, she's happier, she's healthier --------------------- not particularly difficult to think through - is it?
