Webinar content

Anyone interested in aged care reforms is encouraged to participate in the webinar. The presenters will tell you about the major reforms being done to improve aged care in Australia including:

  • improving aged care services at home and in residential settings
  • important changes to quality and safety in aged care
  • how we will enhance our aged care workforce through new initiatives such as additional financial supports and more training for aged care workers
  • a new consumer-focused Aged Care Act.

We are committed to involving senior Australians, their families and carers in implementing the aged care reforms, and working with the aged care industry and the workforce to make the changes that are needed.
