Reforming in-home aged care and regulation update webinar transcript
Transcript of the webinar on 31 August 2022, covering updates on reforms to in-home aged care, the new Aged Care Act and regulatory arrangements.

The Australian Government is returning to the timeframe put forward by the Royal Commission to deliver a reformed and improved in-home aged care program by 1 July 2024. 

This represents an extension from July 2023 and will allow us the appropriate time to develop and deliver a well-considered in-home aged care program in consultation with older Australians and community stakeholders.

This webinar is for older Australians, their families and carers, and the aged care sector. It will cover the next steps for reforming in-home aged care and provide updates on:

  • The outcomes of previous consultations and how input from these consultations has informed the program’s future direction and will inform the development of the new Aged Care Act
  • Designing a new approach to regulating aged care and the development of an overarching Aged Care Act, including upcoming engagement opportunities to inform this work
  • The urgent review of the Aged Care Quality Standards, including upcoming engagement opportunities

This webinar includes Auslan interpreters.
Live captions will available during the webinar via eScribe.

You will have an 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.
