Consultations on Location of New Aged Care Places

Media Release: 15 May 2018

Ensuring thousands of new residential aged care places are located where they are most needed is the aim of a national consultation process underway from today.

Minister for Aged Care, Ken Wyatt AM, said a wide range of aged care stakeholders were invited to take part, to help inform the 2018-19 Aged Care Approvals Round (ACAR), announced in the Turnbull Government’s 2018–19 Budget.

Funding for aged care will increase by $5 billion over the next four years, including for 13,500 new residential aged care places, 775 short term restorative care places and a further $60 million in capital investment, to be made available in this ACAR.

Minister Wyatt said the results of the consultation would help guide the distribution and targeting of new places and capital grants in each state and territory.
