Aged care demand is growing and it is important the current rules remain appropriate and sustainable. The recently released 2016-17 Report on the Operation of the Aged Care Act 1997 (the Act) highlights that the ageing population and increasing number of people with dementia are two key factors driving the demand. The report also explores the current state of the three main types of care that the Government provides to assist older Australians. In this month’s Challenger Tech article, we discuss the current state of each of these services to assist advisers navigating the aged care needs of their clients.
