Residential Care

LASA provides information, advice, support and advocacy to residential aged care providers on topical issues affecting this sector. We liaise with regulatory bodies and Governments and is informed and influenced by the collective knowledge, skills and experience of our Residential Care Members.

Funding Reform

The Australian National – Aged Care Classification (AN-ACC) assessment tool is proposed to replace the Aged Care Funding Instrument (ACFI) for government-funded residential aged care.

An external assessor workforce of registered nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists with at least five years’ aged care experience would administer the AN-ACC.

Additional Services in RACFs

LASA has made a submission on the proposed changes to fees for additional services in response to the Department of Health’s consultation paper.
