The S.A.G.E. study tours will provide Health & Aged Care professionals with an excellent forum for fostering and exchanging learning and cultural opportunities in the delivery of Eldercare around the globe. Their aim is to provide participants with valuable insights from key professionals in the international health and aged care field and to facilitate cultural exchange and business opportunities. Delegates will be able to meet with highly respected health professionals, to visit cutting edge clinical and educational facilities, and to learn about alternative service delivery models in the international arena.

S.A.G.E. study tours offer a unique occasion for two cultures to meet and exchange ideas on social and political approaches to Eldercare. We hope you will take this opportunity to participate in the valuable experience of witnessing another country’s cultural approach to and developments in aged care services and Eldercare delivery.

AgeWell RoadShow


The introduction of the Aged Care Funding Instrument (ACFI) on 20th March 2008 represented one of the biggest changes in residential aged care since the passing of the Aged Care Act in 1997. Many person hours of effort from the Government and from industry representatives and stakeholders has gone into the design of ACFI and making its introduction as smooth as possible.

The information presented through the links below has been developed by ACAA and ACSA. It is intended to complement that produced by the Department of Health and Ageing and a link to their web site may also be found below. Presenting issues, questions and other material from an industry perspective will aid understanding of the ACFI and assist in collecting information to support any changes which may be required as implementation proceeds.

Feedback on this site and the information contained within it is welcome and should be directed to info@agedcareassociation.com.au or through your State Association.
