Another 23,000 home care packages will be available for older Australians who want to keep living at home as part of $2 billion in federal government spending.
Most of the money ($1.6 billion) will go towards more home care packages, taking the total number available to more than 180,000.
The funding has been unveiled as part of Tuesday's federal budget and will apply for home care packages across all levels.
The $2 billion also includes more than $11 million to provide extra dementia services and training programs and $10.3 million to help the aged care workforce strategy be implemented.
The federal government is awaiting the final report from the royal commission into the sector before settling on further funding measures.
The probe's interim report blasted the government's preparedness for coronavirus in aged care homes, with Aged Care Minister Richard Colbeck announcing $40.6 million in an initial response.
The government's handling of the sector during the pandemic has been under intense scrutiny, after more than 660 aged care residents died from coronavirus in Australia.
