The Aged Care Reform Roadmap has been released

A lady speaking in front of a purple banner that reads National Press Club Anika Wells, Minister for Aged Care launched the Aged Care Reform Roadmap at the National Press Club on 7 June 2023.

The Australian Government has released the Aged Care Reform Roadmap to provide an indicative timeline for key reform elements.

Our aim is to help the sector understand what’s coming, be involved in reforms and prepare for the changes ahead to improve aged care.

The dates on the roadmap are subject to change and will be updated regularly to keep sector informed. The roadmap includes major reform elements, sector consultation activities, events and links to more information.

We continue to work closely with the aged care sector and older people in Australia.

We invite older people, families and carers, aged care providers and workers, researchers and experts to help us design changes to aged care, which will benefit everyone. You can continue to get involved and stay informed of consultations, webinars and the progress of the reforms here on the Aged Care Engagement Hub.

This is an ambitious reform. Together we will improve care for older people to deliver greater quality, security and dignity.

More information and links to existing aged care reform pages available from the Department’s Aged Care Reform Roadmap webpage.

Let's change aged care, together
