A big year ahead
elcome to the first edition of Community Care Review for 2016. In this
issue, we review the implementation of the Dementia and Cognition
Supplement in home care, a key policy measure of the Living Longer,
Living Better aged care reforms.
While the supplement was designed to increase the number of people with
dementia receiving support, the latest figures show approximately 6,000 people
(one-third of estimated recipients) have received the additional funding.
Providers have questioned the effectiveness of the mandated assessment tools
and highlighted challenges surrounding the availability and cost of a registered
nurse to conduct the assessment to determine eligibility.
The government’s commissioned evaluation of the Home Care Packages program
completed in April 2015 reported similar concerns regarding barriers to take-up.

Elsewhere, this issue we take a look at a new model for respite care and
groundbreaking research that aims to measure care outcomes in community care.
Continuing the conversation on the shift to a reablement and restorative focus in
the sector, we are pleased to announce that Australian Ageing Agenda and Community
Care Review will again host the Active Ageing Conference. The event will take place on
4 August at the Swissotel Sydney and will share the latest evidence, programs and
strategies for implementing these philosophies.
We encourage you to join in the conversation.
