Published

The aged care sector’s new independent regulator has launched a tool for providers to understand and assess their performance against the new quality standards.

The Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission, which commenced operations on 1 January as the single point of contact for aged care issues, will start assessing all providers of Commonwealth-subsided aged care services against the new single Aged Care Quality Standards from 1 July 2019.
