Visit your local library to learn about changes to aged care

A smiling older lady with short white hair stands in front of wooden bookshelves filled with various books. She is wearing a soft pink cardigan and appears contented and relaxed.

The department has partnered with the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) to share information and resources about aged care with people at their local libraries.

This partnership involves a pilot program taking place at 25 libraries across Australia. Participating libraries will host an interactive aged care resource hub supported by library staff.

You’ll be able to visit these hubs to:

  • find out about aged care and the changes happening as part of the reforms
  • access information that you can take home and read or share with your loved ones
  • provide feedback on what quality aged care looks like to you.

Let's change aged care, together

Every Australian should feel confident about accessing high quality and safe aged care, when and where they need it.

The changes mean older Australians will have greater choice and control, services that respect and meet their needs, and support to stay independent as they age.

To find out more and help design the changes, visit the Get Involved page or call 1800 318 209.
