Media Release: 18 March 2016

Thousands of Australians will benefit from a substantial increase in funding for aged care services, with the Australian Government announcing 17,385 new aged care places worth an estimated $910 million.

Announcing the results of the 2015 Aged Care Approvals Round (ACAR) and new arrangements for the 2016 ACAR, Minister for Aged Care Sussan Ley said the additional funding would benefit thousands of older Australians.

Of the 17,385 new places, 10,940 include new residential places worth an estimated $678.3 million and 6,445 new home care places, worth an estimated $232.4 million.

“These new home care places help our elderly remain in their own home and receive the care they need, which is particularly important for anyone with high-level needs,” Ms Ley said.
