Fewer young people in aged care

There has been an 11 per cent reduction in the number of people under 65 in residential aged care, the Minister for the NDIS Stuart Robert said.

The numbers were down from 6,287 to 5,606 in the period from 31 March 2017 to 30 June 2019. 

While promising, the reasons for these decreases aren’t clear yet. We don’t know how many young people have been able to leave aged care and return to living in the community as a result of new housing being created.
