Why the Aged Care Task Force? The Aged Care Task Force has a critical mission: to review funding arrangements for aged care and create options that ensure fairness and equity for every individual across Australia. This endeavour builds upon the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. It aims to create a sustainable system that addresses the needs of older Australians not only today but well into the future. Innovation and an unwavering commitment to improving the lives of those in aged care are at the heart of this initiative.

What the Task Force Focuses On: The Aged Care Task Force's primary focus is to ensure:

  1. Sustainability: Developing a system that can stand the test of time, providing the care that Australians deserve.
  2. Equity: Ensuring that all older Australians who need aged care have equal access to quality services.
  3. Innovation: Making innovation the standard in the aged care sector to improve services and support.
  4. People-centred Care: Putting the people who use aged care services at the centre of funding arrangements, with their needs and preferences guiding decisions.
