Remote Aged Care Infrastructure Review

Closed 2 Nov 2021

Opened 16 Sep 2021

Overview

The Department of Health is administering a Remote Aged Care Infrastructure Review for residential and home care providers with a central building where onsite services are delivered to aged care clients.

The intention of the review is to identify current infrastructure to improve service viability, quality care delivery and workforce challenges in remote areas.

The project is being conducted as part of the Service Development Assistance Panel (SDAP) program.

Why your views matter

Your participation in this stage of the project will assist the Department in obtaining a greater understanding of the infrastructure needs for remote aged care providers. 

Any questions about the survey can be sent through to SDAPinfrastructure@health.gov.au

 

What happens next

The information collected as part of this survey will inform an onsite assessment of remote aged care infrastructure. If the service provider agrees, a building assessor will visit the service and conduct an on site assessment. This can be done virtually for small remote services. The Department will be in contact following the completion of the survey, we encourage all providers to be a part of the survey for the best possible outcome, this includes floorplans and allowing onsite assessments.
