The Turnbull Government is delivering on its commitment to address the challenges remote aged care providers face as they deliver safe, high-quality care for ageing Australians, with a special meeting held to examine remote aged care services.
The Minister for Aged Care, Ken Wyatt AM, said the meeting with representatives from remote and very remote aged care providers was a direct result of national consultations by the Aged Care Workforce Strategy Taskforce.
“We need a population health approach, one that thinks outside the square and shapes what we need for future years, to build on the existing workforce”
“We are determined to meet this challenge, to deliver the best possible aged care for senior Australians, whether they live in our cities, regional centres or very remote communities.”
