Results of the 2016 Flexible Aged Care Places (Multi-Purpose Services) Allocation Round

Page last updated: 24 January 2017

In January 2017, a total of 55 new flexible aged care places, to be delivered as residential care in Multi-Purpose Services, were allocated across Australia to support aged care in regional and remote communities.

Flexible care places were allocated to expand existing, or to establish new, Multi-Purpose Services.

Also, the care level of 156 existing flexible places previously designated to provide 'low care' have been changed to 'high care'. This resulted in increased funding in recognition of the more complex and increasing care needs of care recipients.

The 2016 Flexible Aged Care (Multi-Purpose Services) Allocation Round will result in an estimated annual increase in funding of over $8.5 million.
