Understanding the Aged Care Reform Agenda

The Australian government is embarking on a significant overhaul of the aged care system, aiming to improve the quality of care and services for our senior citizens. As a community deeply committed to providing the best possible care for our residents, it is important to understand what these changes entail and how they will impact stakeholders.

The Aged Care Reform Agenda is a comprehensive plan developed in response to the findings of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. This reform aims to ensure that all Australians receive the care and respect they deserve in their later years.

At Leigh Place, we are fully committed to embracing these reforms, maintaining the high-quality care we provide to our residents. Our team is actively preparing for the changes by:

  • Participating in training programs aligned to the proposed new Act and Strengthened Standards to commence from 1 July 2025.
  • Ongoing investment in our village to maintain a comfortable and safe environment for all.
  • Engaging with residents and their families to ensure their needs and preferences are at the forefront of our care plans.

We believe that the reforms will lead to a more compassionate and effective aged care system, benefiting our residents and their families, and ultimately all Australians as we age.

The Aged Care Reform Agenda represents a positive step towards a better future for aged care in Australia. At Leigh Place, we are dedicated to implementing these changes and to continuing to provide exceptional care to our residents.

Stay tuned for more updates as we navigate this exciting transition together.
