On 16 September 2018, the Prime Minister announced a Royal Commission into the aged care sector.
The aged care sector is undergoing rapid change with an ageing population, new technology and a greater focus on home care. With a spotlight on this sector, addressing the challenges and opportunities in aged care is essential to ensuring it meets society's current and future needs.
Having acted for the sector's leading operators, its key representative associations and financiers for over 30 years, our national aged care team has a deep understanding of the sector, its needs and the ever changing policy and regulatory environment.
This, married with our comprehensive understanding and experience in all aspects of a Royal Commission, positions us well to help our clients navigate the challenges. Here, we address some of the important issues in aged care and provide news updates and advice on the upcoming Royal Commission.
