Aged and Community Care
Australians are now living longer than ever before. Around 13 per cent of the population in the Brisbane North PHN region (more than 124,000 people) is aged 65 years and over and this is expected to grow as a proportion over the coming decades.
To support the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region's growing community of people aged 65 and over, Brisbane North PHN in collaboration with Metro North Hospital and Health Service (MNHHS), has developed a new five year healthcare plan for older people.
This plan will guide the way healthcare services are delivered to this group of people in our community and represents a commitment between the PHN and MNHHS to improve the coordination, integration and provision of care services to support the health and wellbeing of older people to help them stay healthy and at home.
Our aged and community care programs aim to ensure our region is prepared to meet the challenges arising from increased demand for health and aged care services among older Australians.
We have implemented two aged care consortia as part of our strategy to lead reform and engagement within the local community aged care sector.
