The Aged Care Taskforce, chaired by Minister for Aged Care Anika Wells, has released its final report.

The Taskforce has made 23 recommendations. Among them include:

  • Recommendation 2: Continue the significant role for government funding of aged care services. A specific tax or levy to fund aged care is not recommended.
  • Recommendation 3: It is appropriate older people make a fair co-contribution to the cost of their aged care based on their means.
  • Recommendation 4: Ensure a strong safety net for low means participants to meet aged care costs.
