A new national framework issued today will ensure that aged care recipients receive the best possible assistance from the Australian Government-funded advocates acting on their behalf.
The new National Aged Care Advocacy Framework outlines objectives, guiding principles and target groups for our Government’s National Aged Care Advocacy Program (NACAP).
The framework will ensure that people in all states and territories have access to consistently high quality, independent and free support from NACAP, if they need help with an aged care issue.
It is another example of our Government’s commitment to ensuring senior Australians receive uniformly high quality care from our aged care system.
