Principles as made
This amendment removes all references to community care, Extended Aged Care at Home and Extended Aged Care at Home-Dementia given the establishment of home care. In addition, references to consumer directed care in the context of innovative care services are removed as the requirement to offer care recipients care on a consumer directed care basis will be a part of the home care program rather than an innovative care pilot program.
