Aged Care Quality Standards

Posted: 3rd July 2019

Aged Care Quality Standards

The new national Aged Care Quality Standards officially came into effect this Monday, 1 July. The revised standards have been developed and implemented to protect our older mums and dads accessing aged care services across the country, including residential and home care.

Also in place as of Monday is the new aged care Charter of Rights.

Starting from 1 July, the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission (ACQSC) will now be monitoring and assessing the performance of all providers against the new standards, which have been in development since last year.

The ACQSC and the Federal Government consulted with residents, their families, providers, staff and health experts to build eight new key standards that would set a new benchmark for safe and quality care in our aged care system.

The focus is now more on ‘person-centred’ care.

Under the new rules, service providers will also now be required to provide a ‘statement of outcome’ to each resident or consumer to ensure open communication about how they are meeting each standard – holding operators accountable for the care they provide.

“The new standards require aged care providers to work with each of their consumers to ensure that they receive care that is shaped by the consumer’s needs, goals and preferences,” ACQSC Commissioner, Janet Anderson.
