 Clients and their families have been invited to various consultation sessions across the municipality this week, with one to be held in Koroit today (Friday, October 20). 

Today’s session will be held at the Koroit Senior Citizens Centre from 10am. 

Council’s review process will explore the different roles council can undertake in the community care sector, such as promoting positive ageing, assisting informed decision-making, and continuation of community care support services.

Council aims to ensure it is well-prepared to respond to the upcoming Aged Care Reforms that will bring changes to the operational and funding environment.

“We know we must adapt to evolving funding models while maintaining the quality of care,” Moyne mayor Cr Karen Foster said. 

“Australia’s community care sector has, for many years, been undergoing a process of ongoing reform which presents many challenges to service clients and providers. 

“We want the insights and feedback of our clients, which will be essential in shaping the future of community care services in our shire.”
