Submission by three UnitingCare agencies - Review of the Conditional Adjustment Payment, etc

In this submission “UnitingCare” and “UnitingCare agencies” refer to three particular UnitingCare network agencies, Blue Care in Queensland, Uniting Aged Care Victoria and Tasmania and Uniting Church Homes in Western Australia.


These organisations provide residential aged care and community care services in four states. They provide residential aged care to approximately 6,900 elderly people representing around 4.0% of funded residential aged care beds.

This submission responds to the terms of reference. Additionally, it considers issues impacting the survival of providers and makes recommendations for critically needed long term funding reform to address the unsustainable financial position of the UnitingCare agencies and the residential aged care sector.
