Aged care services are under the spotlight during the current Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.
And from 1 July 2019 approved providers of residential aged care services, home care services and short-term restorative care services as well as service providers of Commonwealth-funded aged care services (e.g., CHSP and NATSIFCP) will need to adhere to new federal Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission rules.
Di Carter, Principal Consultant at Dynamic Initiatives, has a great deal of experience in aged care management and the federal quality auditing requirements. Di upholds the fresh direction by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission Act 2018 and the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission to continuously improve aged care services through:
- protecting and enhancing the safety, health, well-being and quality of life of aged care consumers
- promoting the provision of quality care and services by approved providers of aged care services and service providers of Commonwealth-funded aged care services
- consumer engagement
- complaints handling
- regulatory responsibilities
- providing information and education.
