Flexible care acknowledges that the needs of aged care recipients may require a different care approach than that provided through mainstream residential and home care.
Transition care provides time-limited, goal-oriented and therapy-focused packages of services to eligible older people after a hospital stay.
Older Australians should be supported to stay in their own home, living independently. Short-term restorative care can support people to be independent again after a setback, like an illness or a fall.
The Multi-Purpose Services Program provides integrated health and aged care services for small regional and remote communities, allowing services to exist in regions that could not viably support stand-alone hospitals or aged care homes.
This program funds organisations to provide culturally appropriate aged care for older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people close to home and community.
Innovative care is a small program originally set up to test new approaches to providing care for a specific target group.
