A list of organisations that can provide further information regarding aged care services and supports to older people, their families, carers and health professionals.
The Aged Care Strategy (ACS) Unit plays a crucial role in offering strategic counsel to both state and Commonwealth governments regarding Commonwealth subsidised aged care, particularly concerning its interaction with the healthcare sector. This encompasses the administration of the Aged Care Assessment Program (ACAP) to ensure that its objectives are effectively met within South Australia. The unit's responsibilities extend to overseeing various specialised projects, such as the aged care assessment reforms, governance of specialised dementia care, and other strategic initiatives within the aged care domain.
The Commonwealth government, through the Commonwealth Department of Health and Aged Care (DoHAC) has responsibility for aged care services. Further information can be found on the My Aged Care website which provides information about aged care for older people, families, service providers, assessors and health professionals.
If you have questions about the aged care services, require specific advice or support please contact us through our general enquiries form.
