The community can have its say on the Terms of Reference of the Royal Commission into the Aged Care Sector with an online feedback tool now available.
Today, I am announcing the Government’s decision to ask the Governor General to establish a Royal Commission into the Aged Care sector primarily looking at the Quality of care provided in Residential and Home Aged Care to senior Australians but also including Young Australians with disabilities living in Residential Aged Care settings.
A draft single charter outlining the rights of aged care consumers, regardless of their subsidised care type, is now open for public consultation.
I am honoured to be appointed as the Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care and Minister for Indigenous Health in the Morrison Government.
Multi-purpose services in small rural and remote communities are encouraged to apply for new flexible aged care places under an allocations round opening today.
The Minister for Aged Care, Ken Wyatt AM, has congratulated the winners of this year’s Australian Aged Care Quality Agency Better Practice Awards.
Sam Chisholm AO leaves many legacies, high among those the leadership he gave to Australia’s Organ and Tissue Authority, as inaugural Chairman.
