AAG Position Paper: Wellness and Reablement for all Australians

On 31 July 2020, AAG published its Position Paper: Wellness and reablement for all Australians receiving home, community and residential aged care services.

This paper is the culmination of three years' of collaborative work and background research supported by AAG's Reablement Expert Reference Group members who represent a range of professions, aged care service areas, professionals bodies and service providers. You can read more about AAG's Reablement Expert Reference Group, as well as access the background work and evidence that informed this paper here.

The aim of this Position Paper is to provide clear direction to the Australian Government, policymakers and service providers on the core principles of wellness and reablement in aged care that must be upheld in order to meet the needs, strengths and preferences of Australians as they age. It is not intended to provide detailed guidance on specific wellness and reablement approaches or to advocate for specific funding models or service delivery approaches, but rather to contribute to shared understanding of core principles.
