Aged Care: What do we want from the Next Government

In late May 2013, the Living Longer Living Better (LLLB) 2013 Aged Care Bills passed through the House of Representatives on a 70 -68 vote and now move to the Senate.

The Bills have been the subject of momentous debate with aged care industry peak bodies, providers and other stakeholder groups lobbying for amendments to the Legislation.

With the federal election looming and the possibility of great change for the aged care sector, we ask you to consider – what do we want from the next government?

We invite you to join us as we hear from three leading industry experts on their viewpoints and aspirations for the future of the sector, and

  • Learn what’s hot and what’s not about the Living Longer, Living Better Aged Care Reform Package
  • Explore how the proposed changes will affect older people living in WA
  • Consider what the next government can do for community, residential and dementia policy
