Aged care places are residential and community aged care places provided under the Aged Care Act 1997 and services delivered under the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Aged Care Strategy.
‘Residential aged care’ includes Multi-Purpose Services and places delivered under the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care and Innovative Care Programs.
‘Community aged care places’ comprises Transition Care, Short-Term Restorative Care, Multi-Purpose Services and packages delivered under the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Aged Care Strategy and Innovative Care Pool.
Since 27 February 2017, Home Care Packages (HCP) have been allocated directly to consumers rather than places being allocated to regions and providers. As a result, the concept of HCP places no longer applied from that date.
From 30 June 2017, numbers of HCP recipients are included in the community aged care places and added to the places allocated to the programs listed above.
