COMMISSIONS'S AGED CARE REFORM PLAN BACKED

The Productivity Commission's proposed reforms in aged care have been largely welcomed by providers, welfare groups and healthcare professionals, all of whom have called on the Federal Government to move quickly to implement most of the recommendations.

In its report, the commission recommended older Australians contribute up to $60,000 towards the cost of their aged care. They face uncapped charges for nursing home accomodation but will not be forced to sell their homes to rise the funds for their care.

Calling it a "good starting point, Council on the Ageing Tasmania chief executive Maxine Griffiths said older Tasmanians wanted appropriate and timely support to live out their lives as they chose and for most people this meant suppost and care at home, as long as possible.

The report proposed returning control to older people and, with it, the capacity to maintain their independence, regardless of their financial circumstances.

The introduction of a fair funding structure would ensure the system worked and could be sustained.

In a joint article, Ian Yates, chief executive of COTA, the leading seaniors' advocacy network and with more than 5000,000 members, and Martin Laverty, chief executive of Catholic Health Australia, say there is "overwhelming concensus among older Australians and those who care for them" that the report offers the bases of an "affordable and achieveable planfor the future needs of out ageing population."

"Government and opposition should embrace this concencus and act to fix a brokan system to ensure older Australiansare respected and cared for as well as they can be," they say.
