The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety is in Progress

The Aged Care Royal Commission is about uncovering systemic problems in aged care, meeting the challenges and providing new opportunities to deliver quality aged care in Australia.

Are you prepared?

“Too often, the reforms made to aged care have been addressing a problem in isolation rather than the system as a whole. The sheer number and frequency of reviews shows that there are many issues in aged care which have not been resolved to the community’s satisfaction,”

Peter Gray QC’s opening address at the Royal Commission
into Aged Care Quality and Safety, 11th February, 2019.

The aims of the hearings in February were to provide contextual information for forthcoming hearings and ascertain concerns about Australia’s aged care system. Future hearings through till September, will focus on home care, residential care, dementia and aged people living with a disability. Some of the submissions to be heard will centre on safety, staffing levels and systems to support high quality care. Waiting lists, support for unpaid carers, ageist attitudes in society and the need for promotion of care, dignity and respect for the elderly will also be a focus.
