The first meeting of the National Aged Care Alliance (NACA) – Home Support Advisory Group meeting was held on 19 December 2012. The meeting discussed and proposed changes to the draft Terms of Reference which now have to be approved by NACA. The proposed changes include adding:
• Providing advice on the role of Day Therapy Centre (DTC) and Assistance with Care and Housing for the Aged (ACHA) in the Commonwealth Home Support Program; advising on the use of a wellness/reablement philosophy and approach in the program design; and
• Examining the relationship and interface of the Home Support Program with the National Aged Care Advocacy Program (NACAP) and the Community Visitors Scheme.
