Be involved with reforming Australia’s aged care sector

The Department of Health is seeking expressions of interest from people interested in testing a new aged care assessment model.

The new model will focus on how assessments will work for the new Support at Home program,  which is one of many planned reforms to the aged care sector.

The Support at Home program will replace all in-home aged care programs from July 2023.

How does it work?

If you're selected, you'll join a group of 15 people who will give ongoing advice to support the reform process.

The group meet online via video conference every four weeks from December 2021 to July 2022.

You will need to commit to reviewing prepared papers before each meeting and actively take part in discussions.

Am I eligible?

The Department of Health is looking for:

  • older Australians and their family and carers who have experience with home care services
  • aged care providers who deliver CHSP, HCP, STRC or residential respite services
  • experienced aged care assessors
  • geriatric and allied health professionals.

How do I get involved?

If you’re interested in taking part email a completed Expression of Interest Form and brief CV to SAH.implementation@Health.gov.au by Friday 26 November 2021.
