The ACS Residential Care Committee has provided input into the government’s aged care reform and proposals for policy or legislative changes.

ACS Vision for the aged and community care provision in South Australia

A well resourced aged and community care sector, offering timely access to services, and providing real choices for older people and their families to enable older people to live in a place and community of their choice.

South Australia has the highest proportion of older people of all the Australian states.  At present there are around 16,000 South Australians in residential aged care, and this is set to grow to around 50,000 by 2044-45.
