    • Launceston: Wednesday 13 November at The Sebel, 12-14 St John Street, Launceston

    The Aged Care Finance Forum is designed to inform the aged care sector. It explores the policy, operational and financial changes in the sector in 2019 and beyond, helping operators survive and prosper in an uncertain but exciting environment. The Forum is the opportunity for aged care providers and finance and operational staff across the sector to discuss challenges and share knowledge and insights.

    Financial models in aged care are changing, with a much stronger emphasis on individualised funding in both the home care and the residential care segments. In home care, the model has changed from 1 July 2019 to accommodate the pricing transparency regime, and there are potential changes in the subsidy arrangements. The ACAR Impact Analysis has implications for residential care, and the forum includes a thorough update.

    This is the sector’s opportunity for an in-depth analysis of these changes, setting out the practical solutions for your business. Additional presenters will include representatives from the Department of Health, ACFA, COTA, and Ideal Consultancy Group on legal aspects, residential and home care, and quality standards.

    Conducted by professionals who work closely with all stakeholders in the sector, the Aged Care Finance Forum is perhaps the most beneficial seminar you could attend this year.

    All attendees will receive their own USB containing all the presentations and other useful resources.

    Confirmed guest speakers include:

      • Mike Callaghan - Chair, ACFA
      • Mike Woods - Professor, Health Economics for CHERE, UTS 
      • Ian Yates - Chief Executive, COTA
