Residential Care must satisfy a set of Accreditation Standards in order to receive Government funding. The standards relate to matters such as health, personal care, lifestyle, safety and quality of buildings and surroundings, and management and organisational development. Once accredited, facilities are regularly monitored to ensure continued compliance.
Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency: This independent agency manages the accreditation process, assists facilities to improve the quality of care and services, and refers transgressors to the Department of social services. Please visit My Aged Care website or phone 1800 200 422.
