The Aged Care Council of Elders provides a voice to the Australian Government from older Australians, informed by their lived experiences and local networks.
Council members are appointed by the Minister for Health and Aged Care and provide a direct voice to the Australian Government from older Australians, informed by their lived experiences and local networks.
The Council provides high-level, strategic advice to the Ministers responsible for aged care, and to senior executives in the Australian Department of Health and Aged Care. Council advice is targeted to key matters of concern in relation to aged care reforms.
Since the terms of current members is coming to an end in December 2023, nominations are being sought from older people (aged 60+) with lived experience and expertise in the aged care system.
If you’re passionate about making aged care better for everyone and you are engaged in your local community, this is your chance to get involved and represent older people.
Those in rural and remote locations and from diverse communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
If you don't meet the above criteria but know someone who does, feel free to share this information with your networks.
Applications close COB Friday 28 July (AEST).
