Experts to share insight on aged care’s finance future

Aged care finance experts, StewartBrown, will be holding a series of finance forums across Australia throughout October and November to help providers understand policy, operational and financial changes in the sector.

The Aged Care Finance Forum offers a chance for finance and operational staff to discuss challenges and share knowledge and insights.

Financial models in aged care are changing, with a much stronger emphasis on individualised funding in both the home care and the residential care segments.


In home care, the model has changed from 1 July 2019 to accommodate the pricing transparency regime, and there are potential changes in the subsidy arrangements. The ACAR Impact Analysis has implications for residential care, and the forum includes a thorough update.

This is the sector’s opportunity for an in-depth analysis of these changes, setting out the practical solutions for your business. 

Additional presenters will include representatives from the Department of Health, ACFA, COTA, and operational experts on legal aspects, residential and home care, and quality standards.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Mike Callaghan – Chair, ACFA
  • Mike Woods – Professor, Health Economics for CHERE, UTS 
  • Ian Yates – Chief Executive, COTA
  • Corey Irlam – Deputy Chief Executive, COTA
  • Andrew Coll – Director Aged Care Policy, DOH
  • Rachel Lane- Principal, Aged Care Gurus
  • Fiona Somerville – Commercial Director, The Ideal Consultancy
  • Louise Green – Director Business Improvement, The Ideal Consultancy
