This workshop is a great introduction to the residential aged care (RAC) and NDIS interface. It will provide clarity on who is responsible for what and provide insight on the muddy waters that can exist.
It will also discuss the government's commitment to the YPIRAC Strategy and work that is being done.

After this workshop you will be able to:

  • Leverage the implementation of the government’s younger people in residential aged care (YPIRAC) Strategy and NDIS policy
  • Provide younger people in aged care with information and examples of NDIS supports
  • Identify and understand responsibilities in the interface between the NDIS and aged care systems
  • Work together with RAC and NDIS professionals to lead a collaborative approach across service systems
  • Assist a person choosing to leave RAC to access appropriate supports to live well in the community

Why should I attend this workshop?

The government set ambitious targets of no one under the age of 65 being admitted to aged care by 2022 and no one under 65 living in aged care by 2025.

While there has been modest progress on these targets there are still around 3,000 people under 65 living in aged care, and each month another 30 enter.
