Elsewhere the PC’s report shows less than half of older people entered residential care within three months of their Aged Care Assessment Team approval (44.7 per cent) with the average waiting time increasing to 121 days in 2018 from 105 days in 2017 and 84 in 2016.
There were also 180,493 completed ACAT assessments in 2017-18, with each costing $681 on average, and 234,774 approvals for residential care and the home care packages.
