The Department of Social Services aims to encourage older people to live active and independent lives. The Department works to deliver quality, affordable and accessible aged care and carer support services for older people, including through subsidies and grants, industry assistance, training and regulation of the aged care sector.
Responsibility for aged care and ageing recently moved to the Department of Social Services. Ageing and Aged care content on the Department of Health’s website will be progressively published to this website.
While this process is taking place, the latest news will be available from this page.
