Reforming Aged Home Care and Regulation – Update

0

The Australian government is returning to the timetable proposed by the Royal Commission to put in place a reformed and improved aged care home program by July 1, 2024.

This represents an extension from July 2023 and will give us the time we need to develop and implement a well-thought-out Elderly Home Care program in consultation with older Australians and community stakeholders.

This webinar is aimed at older Australians, their families and carers, and the aged care sector. It will cover the next steps in elder care home reform and provide updates on:

  • The results of previous consultations and how feedback from these consultations informed the future direction of the program and will inform the development of the new Elder Care Act
  • Devising a new approach to regulating elder care and the development of a comprehensive elder care law, including upcoming engagement opportunities to inform this work
  • The urgent review of quality standards in care for the elderly, including opportunities for future engagement

You will have the opportunity to submit questions during the webinar.

If you are unable to attend the webinar, a recording will be available on the department’s website within 7 days of delivery.
