Aged care

Abstract

The past decade has seen substantial changes in the Australian aged care system, under the broad rubric of the Aged Care Reform Strategy. While the expansion in size and scope of home-based care services, and the reduction in levels of nursing home bed provision, were undoubtedly the most dramatic changes, the introduction of a national regulatory program for residential care, the emergence of a user rights focus, and the development and expansion of brokered forms of community care were also significant events in aged care policy during that time.1 The decade to come promises to be one of further change and development, with a number of major policy developments already underway as part of the National Aged Care Strategy announced by the Coalition Government in 1996.
