Aged Care

The PHNs funding under the Australian Government Aged Care Reform Package focuses on delaying older people’s entry into Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACFs) and reducing avoidable hospitalisations.

PHN support includes:

  • Aged Care Emergency (ACE) information and resources
  • Early Intervention strategy and initiatives to support healthy ageing
  • Support RACFs to increase availability and use of telehealth care for their residents
  • Provide guidance and assistance to RACFs to have appropriate after-hours plans in place for residents
  • Commissioning of the Care Finder program
