A position paper has been developed by the National Aged Care Alliance’s (NACA) Care at Home Reform Advisory Group regarding a model for integration of the Commonwealth Home Support and Home Care Package Programs.

LASA will look to engage Members through its LASA Home Care Advisory Groups (HCAG) across July to September 2018 to consider the positions taken in the NACA Care at Home Reform Advisory Group’s position paper with the intent to draw out key issues for progressing future home care reform policy implementation consistent with the paper’s direction.

Members are encouraged to participate in their state based meetings of the LASA HCAGs during this time. The intention after this period of consultation is to feedback information to delegates at LASA’s National Congress in Adelaide on 28-30 October 2018 for consideration, as well as progressing this through to the Minster for Aged Care and Department of Health for further consideration.
