Results of the 2017-18 Flexible Aged Care Places (Multi-Purpose Services) Allocation Round

Page last updated: 19 December 2017

The Multi-Purpose Services Program supports aged care service delivery in regional and remote communities. 

The 2017 Flexible Aged Care (Multi-Purpose Services) Allocation Round finalised in December 2017 will result in an estimated annual increase in funding of over $3 million.

Key results

A total of 15 new flexible aged care places, to be delivered as residential care in a Multi-Purpose Service, were allocated to establish a new Multi-Purpose Service in Bonalbo, NSW.

The care level of 63 existing flexible places previously designated to provide 'low care' have been changed to 'high care'. This will mean increased funding and service delivery for care recipients with more complex and increasing care needs.
