The recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety identified a path forward for improving aged care in Australia. In response, we are developing reforms to improve the quality and safety of care delivered to older people.
This includes designing a new regulatory model for aged care. The model will make sure we have an aged care culture that:
- places older people at its heart
- is fit for purpose
- is transparent
- is accountable
- is collaborative
- meets the needs of older people receiving care.
It will support planned reforms to in-home aged care, and other recommendations of the Royal Commission.
When finalised, the new model will be included in the New Aged Care Act and its supporting legislation.
