The Australian Government is restoring dignity to aged care, putting practical measures in place to meet the needs of older Australians.
The Government’s 2022-23 October Budget responds directly to 23 of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety recommendations.
These aged care reforms will:
- Deliver fair and responsive residential and in-home aged care services.
- Provide targeted assistance for older Australians with diverse backgrounds, experiences and care needs.
- Build a strong, valued and qualified aged care workforce.
- Ensure a more transparent and accountable aged care sector with independent oversight.
The aged care reforms will put older Australians first and improve quality, safety and choice.
