The Royal Commission will be looking into the profile of younger people in residential aged care and the specific circumstances that has driven the admission of younger people into nursing homes.
This includes the care younger people receive while they are in residential aged care facilities and how this affects their exit from nursing homes, and the challenges they face seeking appropriate accommodation.
It will investigate what services are typically available and provided to younger people receiving care in residential nursing homes.
The Commission will also look into the policy responsibilities of the aged care system, social service system and health system, and the interfaces between those listed systems.
Organisations and individuals have already been approached by the Royal Commission to give evidence at the September public hearings.
