AHPA’s Aged Care Working Group surveyed allied health professionals working in residential aged care about any changes experienced in the six weeks since the AN-ACC funding model commenced on 1 October 2022. Results show there are already serious impacts on both the allied health residential aged care workforce and aged care residents, including more than one in eight allied health professionals losing their jobs and another 30% planning to leave the sector. The Report, which has been provided to Minister Anika Wells, recommends setting a minimum benchmark for allied health service provision and ensuring commensurate funding.’
