The Department of Health and Aged Care is inviting Audiology Australia members to have their say in contributing to the direction and shape of a new Australian aged care system, as part of a broader consultation process.
The new Aged Care Act will change the way services are delivered to older people in their homes, in community settings and in residential care homes.

Consultation will close on Friday 16 February 2024.
