Caring for Older Australians - Public Inquiry

Australian Government – Productivity Commission


The Treasurer, in consultation with the Minister for Ageing, has asked the Productivity Commission to conduct a Public Inquiry into the aged care system in Australia. In carrying out the Inquiry the Commission will develop options for further structural reform of the aged care system to prepare it to meet the challenges facing it in coming decades.

As part of the Inquiry the Commission will consult widely with older Australians, their carers, aged care providers, government agencies and other stakeholders.

The briefing paper below summarises the Inquiry’s Terms of Reference, the Public Inquiry process and outlines key issues facing the aged care sector.
