Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a $537 million funding package this week in response to the Aged Care Royal Commission’s Interim Report.

The package will provide:

  • $496.3 million for an additional 10,000 home care packages
  • $25.5 million to improve medication management programs to reduce chemical restraint and new restrictions and education for prescribers
  • $10 million for dementia training and support to reduce the use of chemical restraint
  • $4.7 million to meet new targets to remove younger people with disabilities from residential care.

The new home care packages will be targeted at higher needs recipients requiring Level 3 and 4 packages and will begin rolling out from 1 December 2019.
