Rural, Regional and Remote Priority for New Aged Care Places

Aged care in rural, regional and remote communities will be prioritised in a record-breaking new Aged Care Approval Round (ACAR) announced today by Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack and Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt AM.

Announcing the 2018 ACAR at the RSL Remembrance Village in Wagga Wagga, Minister McCormack and Minister Wyatt said the Turnbull Government would provide an additional 13,500 residential aged care places, and 775 short-term restorative care places across the nation.

“This is the largest number of residential places to have been made available in a single ACAR and is an important part of our government’s $5 billion Budget boost for aged care,” said Minister Wyatt.

“While all applications are welcome and will be independently assessed on their merits, special consideration will be given to non-metropolitan areas through the application process.
