aged care placement | the better way
Posted: 8th July 2019
In March 2019, there were 129,038 people waiting for a home care package at their approved level of care.
Over 53,000 people in the home care queue have been given an interim package at lower levels than what they need, and the wait times for a higher level package are currently more than 12 months after initial approval for a home care package.
Around 75,000 people in the home care queue have been offered access to the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP), but it is difficult to tell whether the CHSP is assisting these people appropriately.
There are also interim steps that the Government can take to mitigate the queue, including prioritising those with low means, making it easier for people to use home equity and recycling unspent funds.
