Government spending on aged care 2017–18

Aged care services in Australia are funded by governments (federal, state, territory and local governments), non-government organisations (charities, religious and community groups), and personal contributions from those receiving care. The majority of spending on aged care services (96%) comes from the Australian Government.

The following dashboard presents key figures on government spending on aged care services, including a breakdown of commonwealth and state spending on different types of services, and how government spending on aged care has changed over time.
