Changes to Home Care Packages: Implications for Governance

The ‘Home Care Today’ project ran from 2013 to June 2017. COTA Australia continues to provide access to Home Care Today resources which were current at June 2017. However they are no longer monitored or updated, and information may not be current.

Reform in the aged care sector has been continuing for nearly a decade. Never has an industry been the subject of such a large paradigm shift, moving from a regulated grants based market to a consumer driven competitive environment. Home Care Today has developed the resource Changes to Home Care Packages: Implications for Governance’ to assist boards of small to medium sized Home Care Package providers to plan for the changes that took place in February 2017.  The aim of the resource is to identify key issues and risks so that boards can take a systematic and strategic approach to future planning.

This Booklet and PowerPoint presentation resource was developed through a series of interviews with key aged care and disability sector stakeholders throughout the latter half of 2015. The resource is not an exhaustive governance guide but rather a synthesis of emerging strategic considerations for boards overseeing Home Care Packages.
