The Home and Community Care (HACC) program is a joint Australian and state and territory government initiative that has this year alone assisted more than 830,000 Australians remain living independently in their own homes.
This HACC program annual report is the first since the program’s inception in 24 years. It is designed to provide a detailed account of the activities and achievements of the program and identify areas for continuous improvement.
This year alone the program received more than $1 billion in Australian Government funding and more than $698 million in state and territory contributions totalling $1.8 billion.
Australians are living longer, healthier lives due to medical advances and lifestyle choices.
By 2056, Australian Bureau of Statistics data predicts that the over-65s will represent 24 per cent of Australia’s entire population, up from just 13 per cent in 2007.
Governments across Australia recognise and understand the desire of older people wanting to remain living in their own homes with the assistance of community care services. The HACC program is a critical component in providing this independence through its many diverse and innovative programs and services.
This valuable snapshot of the HACC program will help Government continue to build on this important initiative that aims to provide valuable services to the people in our community who need them most.
