Created 23 February 2017
The exciting results of the first Short-Term Restorative Care (STRC) funding round were made public today, with an announcement by the Commonwealth Department of Health that 475 places had been allocated across Australia. The round, which was held as part of the 2016/17 Aged Care Approvals Round (ACAR) late last year, was extremely competitive, with over 18,000 places sought. The Department noted that: “The demand was exceptional in the majority of metropolitan and surrounding areas”.
As ever, Verso’s success rate remains strong. We are delighted to have successfully supported a number of clients, who received a total of almost 20% of the allocated places. With winning applications developed across WA, Victoria and NSW in both metropolitan and regional areas, the Verso team maintains the view that preparation is key.
More information on the STRC results can be found here. The results of the 2016/17 ACAR residential aged care applications are expected to be released in mid 2017.
