Government announces $280m for new home care packages

Published

The federal government has announced an additional 10,000 home care packages as part of a $662 million commitment to aged care.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said home care packages across all levels would be funded by a $282.4 million injection and $7.7 million would “enhance the safety, quality and integrity” of home care.

Home care supplements for dementia, cognition and veterans will  be increased by $35.7 million and $7.4 million will go towards a business advisory service for residential and home care.

Ken Wyatt said the figure builds on a $552 million commitment in the government’s budget outlook last December which included 10,000 new high-care home care packages.
