Aged Care Reforms Update: Consultations and Reports

National review of wellness and reablement in home care

The department has recently engaged Nous Group to undertake a national review of wellness and reablement approaches within the home care sector.

The review will:

  • help us to better understand existing programs and pathways and barriers to implementing wellness and reablement approaches
  • be used to develop strategies for embedding wellness and reablement approaches in the home care sector now and in the future.

Your participation will make sure we learn about existing best practice programs and key issues affecting the implementation of these approaches.

Further information is available on the Wellness and Reablement Review website.

Please note:  An online consumer survey is expected to be released soon. 

CALD and LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Strategies

The department invites you to share your thoughts and feedback on the National Ageing and Aged Care Strategies for:

  • people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds
  • lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people.

The department is currently reviewing progress against the Strategies. As well as highlighting achievements, we need to identify any gaps where more needs to be done. Your feedback will contribute towards the review and inform the development of a new Aged Care Diversity Framework.

The survey will take around 10 minutes to complete, with the option to provide more detailed responses available through the relevant submission links below.

Surveys close at 5.00 pm AEST on 28 April 2017
