Australia's Aged Care System is Changing
From July 1 the aged care system in Australia will change. This may be of interest to you if you use aged care services or home and community care (HACC) service; or a carer for someone who uses these services.
The Commonwealth Home Support Program will commence operation on this date. You can read more about it here.
On this date too, all Home Care Packages will become consumer directed care packages.
Further information on these changes can be found on the My Aged Care website and on the Department of Social Services website.
