Submission to A new Aged Care Act: Exposure Draft

Anglicare Australia believes that every person has the right to dignity and quality of life as they age. The introduction of a new Aged Care Act provides us with an opportunity to transform Australia’s current aged care system and ensure we are doing our best to ensure the system is sustainable, meets the needs of those within the system, and recognises the rights of older people. In this submission, we call for greater support in developing a robust, sustainable and equitable legislative framework for all actors in the system.
