Deciding on a suitable aged care facility requires plenty of research. There are the obvious points to consider such as cost, type of care, and the location of the centre. However, there are other factors such as aged care regulations and the application process required by these facilities.
You also need to ensure that the Home adheres to a predetermined set of guidelines and quality standards. Accreditation standards need to be followed by all facilities that receive a government subsidy.
In 2018 the Federal Government introduced the Aged Care Quality Standards and established the Aged Care Quality & Safety Commission.
Not only did this commission develop and implement these standards it is also responsible for the ongoing monitoring and evaluation of Aged Care facilities and related complaints handling. Residents, family members and the community can be sure that every accredited government-subsidised residential aged care facility has met these strict accreditation standards.
It is imperative aged care homes provide quality and safe care for consumers and Christadelphian Aged Care is strongly committed to working with government agencies to ensure the highest level of care and service for all those who reside in one of our homes.
The Next Step
Once you have found an accredited facility, all older Australians wishing to enter aged care then have to undergo an assessment with a member of an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) who will assist you in determining the type of care that is required.
Christadelphian Aged Care adheres to all government regulations, and all of our Homes are fully accredited. This gives our residents and their loved ones peace of mind knowing that we will provide exceptional service.
