On Friday, 20 April, 2012 the Federal Government announced a package of reforms which included a significant number of recommendations from the Productivity Commission and campaigned for by COTA.
These reforms, Living Longer. Living Better., are an encouraging beginning and will set Australia on a path to providing better care for older Australians for the long term.
COTA is committed to ensuring the voice of older people is heard throughout the Aged Care Reform process. Please click here to find information about the proposed reforms and to keep up to date with the reform process.
From December 2011 to February 2012 COTA TAS consulted with older people about aged care reform. The summary report of the finding from the consultation is available here.
