The submission to the Australian Productivity Commission inquiry into aged care considers the impact of regulation and competition on high care services in residential aged care. It recommends the Commission consider its recommendations in regard to the circumstances and needs of older people and their carers when they are seeking high care beds. Such services are often accessed at a time of crisis and the older person is in a particularly vulnerable situation. This service type requires additional consideration when reviewing its funding base and governing legislation.
