In the 2015 Budget, the Australian Government announced the expansion of flexible care initiatives. A new form of restorative care, the Aged Care Short-Term Restorative Care (STRC) Programme, is being established to increase the care options available to older people, and improve their capacity to stay independent and living in their homes.
The Department of Social Services is seeking feedback on the STRC Programme Policy Consultation Paper. The paper puts forward the proposed key elements of the STRC Programme’s policy framework. Some sections propose options. In these sections, specific feedback on a preferred option is sought.
How to provide your feedback
The Policy Consultation paper is available on the Department’s website at www.dss.gov.au/strc. Feedback will close at 10am, Monday 19 October 2015.
Information is available on the Department’s website at www.dss.gov.au/strc.
If you have any questions about the briefings, you are welcome to email STRC@dss.gov.au.
