The recent change of Government in Australia has led to a major shift in the progress towards a new program of home care for older Australians. The Support At Home Program commencement will be delayed until July 1, 2024.
The Government has said they will use the additional time to consult and work with older Australians, their families and carers, workers, advocates and home care providers to do everything possible to achieve a better home care system.
What does this mean for people already using home care?
The team will continue to support you to receive the care and services that align with your care needs. Care Connect will bring you information about consultations, however, if you’re interested you can register with the Department of Health Aged Care Engagement Hub to get notified via directly email:
If you have questions you would like to discuss, please contact your Care Manager who is focused on supporting you to live independently and safely at home.
