Residential providers in rural, regional and remote areas have picked up more than a third of places in the 2018–19 Aged Care Approvals Round, the government has announced.

Vulnerable seniors will have priority access to almost a quarter of the new places, Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care Ken Wyatt said today.

The government called for a focus on meeting the needs of seniors living in rural, regional and remote areas in applications for the 2018-19 ACAR, which opened on 2 July and closed on 10 August last year (read more here).

The ACAR includes 13,500 new residential aged care places worth $907 million a year and $60 million in capital works funds investment to finance the construction and extensions of aged care homes.
