Living Longer. Living Better. Aged Care Reform Package, April 2012 /

by Australia. Department of Health and Ageing.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Health and Ageing 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2012Summary: Older Australians deserve greater choice and control over their care arrangements, more than the aged care system is currently able to give them. We need new and more equitable ways of meeting the ever increasing costs of aged care and ensuring that the most vulnerable in our society are fully protected. And the aged care sector needs to work more closely with the wider health system to tackle key health challenges in particular, the dementia epidemic, and support for end-of-life care. The Aged Care Reform package will modernise Australia‟s aged care system. It will deliver immediate benefits to older Australians and the broader community, while laying the foundations for longer term reform. It will strike the right balance between essential and much-needed changes and ensure the pace of change does not compromise the capacity of the current system to continue to deliver care at a time of transition.Availability: (1)
