Sutherland Shire Aged Care Interagency
This discussion paper represents the views of members of Sutherland Shire Aged Care Interagency (ACI).
ACI membership is comprised of funded providers of in-home and community-based care and supports under the Commonwealth Home Supports Program (CHSP), Home Care Packages (HCP) and other local professionals working for older people who need help to live safely and independently in their own homes, and their carers. Members include managers and co-ordinators of not-for-profit and private organisations and regional CHSP Sector Support and Development Officers; some services are unfunded. The ACI meets at least six times per year to share information, discuss aged care policy and reforms, and to develop joint solutions to systemic challenges.
The Sutherland Shire CHSP Sector Support and Development Officer (SSDO) project provides the secretariat support for the ACI.
