“When all is said and done, good Government should be about ensuring that the most vulnerable people in our community are well cared for.”
- Craig Laundy MP

The Coalition Government strongly believes in the pivotal role that government has in caring and assisting for those most vulnerable in our community.

Aged Care is a sector that will become increasingly important in our community as demographics shift in the coming decades. That’s why the Government is introducing new reforms to strengthen aged care quality and safety, to increase standards and transparency for older people in need of care.


Safeguarding Care and Rights 

The Government is reforming the aged care system to ensure that aged care facilities are providing the care the community expects and guarantee and respect the dignity of older Australians.

The Government will establish a new Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission from 1 January 2019. This new, single set of quality standards will strengthen and streamline the regulation of safe, quality care for older Australians, as the Turnbull Government continues its unparalleled aged care reform agenda.

Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt AM introduced the Aged Care (Single Quality Framework) Reform Bill 2018 to Parliament today and said the changes would increase certainty and make it easier for aged care recipients and their families.

The Government is also providing $22 million to develop the National Plan on Elder Abuse. The Government will work with the states and territories to develop a national online register for enduring powers of attorney.

The 2018 Budget has allocated $50 million to assist residential aged care providers with the transition to the Single Quality Framework.
