People living in rural and remote areas across the Snowy Mountains are being urged to support a new blueprint for aged care reform.
The National Aged Care Alliance (NACA) is promoting the blueprint and seeking support for a move to a simpler, fairer and more affordable aged care sector.
The detailed submission covers an increase in the accommodation payment to accurately reflect the costs of living and travelling in remote regions, as well as better recognition of the costs involved with providing aged care.
The proposal is calling for both a commitment to a new system as well as a timeframe for it's implementation.
Anyone interested in the blueprint is encouraged to become familiar with it at naca.asn.au
