The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety was established in October 2018 to inquire into the quality of aged care services provided to Australians and the delivery of aged care services in a sustainable way, including through innovative models of care and increased use of technology.
To assist the Royal Commission in its work, a review of innovative models of aged care has been undertaken to provide learnings for the aged care system in Australia. This review identifies key innovative models (emerging nationally as well as internationally), including those specific to people living with dementia, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and/or intersex (LGBTI) people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) people, people living in rural and remote areas, and young people with disability living in residential aged care.
This report presents the findings from this review and summarises key innovative approaches separately for residential care, home/community care, the diverse populations mentioned above, and the use of technology.
