The Australian Financial Reviews is reporting on the health care plans of some of the biggest nursing homes in Australia.
The new NFS covers the care and services of around 1,400 residents and their families, and is set to come into effect in July.
Its rollout is likely to be quicker than the previous version, which was due to come in October 2020.
“It’s been a bit of a shock for some people, as you might imagine, to see that the NGF has now come in,” NFS director of research and policy, Professor Brian Jervis, told the ABC.
“It was a huge surprise, and a lot of people were surprised.”
The NGF is a very different approach to the current model of providing nursing home residents with their own services, as they do in a community.
“Professor Jervise said the NFP was an attempt to get the services that were being provided to the residents and families to work with a more modern system of care, rather than simply a mix of nursing home services and care that was being provided in the community.
The NFS is a national policy that will be rolled out nationally by 2020.”
We’re looking to get it out there as quickly as possible,” Professor Jervises said.”
I think it’s a good start to getting people’s attention, and to really get them involved in the process of getting this program up and running.
“He said the main focus of the new NFP would be to help people access new nursing home facilities.
He said people could apply to live in a nursing homes facility on their own terms and would be able to take advantage of facilities that were currently not open to the public.”
A lot of the facilities in our country, we don’t have that opportunity,” he said.
Mr Jervs said the first phase of the NFU was designed to provide a better balance between the needs of patients and the care that is provided by their families.”
Nursing home residents are very, very complex, they are very demanding,” he explained.”
There’s a lot that they want to do and they need to be supported to do it, and so that’s the primary focus of this initiative.
“He also said that the new version would help people who needed support from the government.”
This new NFU is really designed to meet those needs,” he noted.”
And there will be a provision for a range of services that are being provided by other health systems in the country, and in particular the federal government, that are not available in the public sector.
“The government will be making sure the NUIs will help the community and those who need it, he said, adding the NAF will help with the process to create the NNFs.
There are currently 1,399 nursing homes operating in Australia, with 1,087 in Queensland, and another 3,988 in the ACT.
