Keeping you updated on changes to aged care

Change is coming. We’re here to help

The Australian government is in the process of rolling out a major reform across both residential and in-home aged care, called ‘Support at Home’.

This reform has been prompted by the recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aged Care, and aims to deliver a more timely, efficient, responsive and financially sustainable aged care system.

Whether you already receive some level of care or are just getting started, we’ve gathered everything you need to know about the reform across both in-home and residential aged care.

Some important things to remember:

  • The changes are all very positive and aim to improve access to aged care services; better align services to individual needs; bring administration costs down; and simplify the entire process.
  • If you already receive aged care services, you will not lose your level of care.
  • If you do not already receive aged care services, but you think you may need more support, you don’t need to wait until the reform has progressed. You can get in touch with us right away by calling 1300 090 256.
