Improving the Interface between the Aged Care and Disability Sectors Discussion Paper (August 2016)
The National Aged Care Alliance (the Alliance) has long been concerned that the needs of older people with disability will not be met by the aged care system.Over 2015-16, the Alliance has examined the ageing and disability interface. With the imminent implementation of aged care reforms and the full NDIS, the Alliance remains concerned that there will not be adequate support for older people with disability within the suite of aged care programs as they are designed today. The Alliance is also concerned that the interface between the disability and aged care sectors is not yet clearly articulated or understood by either sector.
