Aged Care (Living Longer Better) Bill 2013; Australian Aged Care Quality Agency Bill 2013; Australian Aged Care Quality Agency (Transitional Provisions) Bill 2013; etc

UnitingCare Australia welcomes the tabling of the five Aged Care Bills that are designed to
give effect to the “Living Longer, Living Better” package of reforms.

These reforms are an important first step in implementing the recommendations of the
Productivity Commission report Caring for Older Australians released in August 2011. We
welcome the comprehensive review provisions in the Aged Care (Living Longer Living
Better) Bill 2013 (pages 2-4) which may contribute in time to the full implementation of the
Productivity Commission recommendations.
