New Aged Care Quality Standards

At Southern Cross Care NSW & ACT (SCC) we place our residents and home care clients care at the heart of everything we do so we can support you to live life to the full.

The Aged Care Sector is introducing a new quality framework, that brings residential and home-based aged care services under one set of Quality Standards.

From 1 July 2019, there will be eight Quality Standards that each aged care service provider will be assessed against, replacing the old Quality Standards that were previously used. At the heart of each standard is the resident or client, with the aim to provide you with greater choice and control.

The eight new standards are:
  1. Consumer dignity and choice
  2. Ongoing assessment and planning with consumers
  3. Personal care and clinical care
  4. Services and supports for daily living
  5. Organisation’s service environment
  6. Feedback and complaints
  7. Human resources
  8. Organisational governance

At SCC, we strive to provide care and services that allow our residents and clients to live safely, comfortably and with respect and dignity so you can live the life you choose.
