Changes to aged care

The Australian Government is progressively implementing changes to the aged care system. This is in response to the growing population of older people and the challenges facing the current aged care system.

The changes seek to create a better system to give older people more choice, more control and easier access to a full range of aged care services.

More information is available on the Aged Care reforms, on the Department of Health website.
