The Trusted Indigenous Facilitators initiative, an Australian first, will develop a First Nations team to assist older First Nations individuals, their families, and caregivers in accessing aged care facilities that are tailored to their sociocultural needs.
Anika Wells, minister of aging, stated, "We are ensuring that the new aged care sector includes special and appropriate support for the unique and evolving requirements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, as advised by the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.
The Australian government is spending $115 million to establish safe aged care facilities for First Nations people and $106 million to give face-to-face assistance to older First Nations people. Four years will pass between the delivery of this cash.
The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organization will collaborate with Aboriginal Community Controlled organisations in cooperation with the Australian Government to help senior First Nations individuals and their families find and receive levels of care. This dependable assistance will be delivered by a team of over 250 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees across Australia.
In order to determine service gaps and comprehend problems, the Government has collaborated with regional communities, seniors, investors, and the Aboriginal Community Controlled Sector to advise on a radical approach to care for the elderly First Nation people.
