A letter from the Aged Care Commissioner

Following the Royal Commission into Aged Care and Safety between 2018 – 2021, some of the recommendations are being introduced on 1st December.

CatholicCare is in full support of the Commission recommendations, which will see the Commission having more power to make sure aged care providers meet their responsibilities.

There are three key changes being introduced in December, which include:

  • Improving the way aged care services are run
  • The introduction of a new code of conduct
  • The creation of a Serious Incident Response Scheme for both home and community aged care

To provide more information on these changes, a letter from the Commissioner, Janet Anderson PSM, has been issued which we encourage all aged care clients to read.
