The Morrison government's $17.7 billion investment in aged care includes more than $630 million to improve the access to quality aged-care services for senior Australians in regional, rural and remote areas, including special needs groups. This targeted investment will support communities identifying as being most in need. To ensure that Commonwealth home support program services remain accessible to all eligible senior Australians, providers are required to be as responsive as possible to requests from senior Australians and their carers for short-term or ongoing home support services. To access services, senior Australians, their family or their carers can contact My Aged Care for advice to arrange an assessment of their aged-care needs.
