The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety is inviting submissions from interested individuals and organisations on the future design of the aged care system.
The Royal Commissioners, the Honourable Tony Pagone QC and Ms Lynelle Briggs AO, have today released a consultation paper that explores options for future design of aged care programs. The model set out in the paper is intended to support people to pursue and enjoy meaning and quality of life whether in their own home or a residential service.
In the paper, the Commissioners ask “how could we ensure that any redesign of the aged care system makes it simpler for older people to find and receive the care and supports that they need?”
Submissions are sought on key questions about the design of the aged care system. These submissions are an opportunity for interested individuals and organisations to help shape the future of aged care. The Royal Commissioners encourage people to download and read the paper, and respond to the design questions through a submission.
