21/04/12: Aged-care changes to aid baby boomers

Landmark aged care changes announced

The Government has released a range of proposed changes to aged care and options for older Australians.

Many of the proposals address issues raised by the Productivity Commission including (a) options to allow individuals to continue living in their home (b) contributions to the cost of care by individuals and (c) centralised areas for seeking information. At this stage there is no legislation to support the changes, so it is possible that the details may change once legislation is introduced into Parliament.
