ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR RESIDENTIAL AGED CARE AND SHORT-TERM RESTORATIVE CARE
During the 2018–19 financial year, the government will provide $60 million to fund additional places in residential aged care and short-term restorative care. A further $82.5 million will support mental health services for residents of aged care facilities.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU ?
As part of this initiative, the government will simplify the aged care assessment forms available via the My Aged Care website. This will make it easier to access the aged care services that you or your loved ones need.
