Caring for the elderly at home during the coronavirus pandemic

Last week, the Australian government announced a $444.6 million package for the aged care sector to ensure the continuity of the aged care workforce, $92m of which will go towards additional support for home care providers and organisations that deliver the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP).

There is also $78.3m for residential care to support continuity of workforce supply, and $234.9m for a COVID-19 retention bonus to ensure the continuity of the workforce for staff in both residential and home care.
