We’re gathering input from our members and clients about their experiences as part of a submission to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.
To inform our submission, we’ve developed a survey for members and clients over 65 to provide their feedback on their experiences of the aged care system.
The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety was established in late 2018 and will focus on the regulation of clinical, medical and allied health care for the aged.
We’re hoping to use this opportunity to provide feedback on the My Aged Care scheme to ensure it’s providing an appropriate level of support for aged people with a physical disability, especially when they cannot access NDIS funding.
The closing date for submissions into the Royal Commission has not yet been announced, but it is expected to be in the second half of 2019.

All responses will remain anonymous, however you can choose to consent for us to contact you to discuss your feedback more in-depth if you wish.
This submission to the Royal Commission is one of the many activities we are undertaking outlined in our Advocacy Charter, which includes working with our members and the government to improve access to aids, funding and equipment.
