High care residential aged care facilities in Victoria : consultation paper /

by Victoria. Department of Human Services.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Victorian Government Publishing Service 2000Description: 59 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2000Summary: Over 36,000 older Victorians are residents of Commonwealth-funded residential aged care facilities, of whom just under half are in high care residential care facilities. The Commonwealth Government funds, regulates and sets standards for high and low care facilities. In 1995 the previous Victorian Government removed the State regulatory framework for nursing homes. At the time, it was argued that the State regulatory framework duplicated the Commonwealth's role. The Victorian Government believes that the community expects all levels of Government to work co-operatively to promote the well being of residents living in aged care facilities. Through this paper the Victorian Government wishes to stimulate discussion about positive action that can be taken to promote a greater sense of confidence among older people and their carers about residential aged care services. The Victorian Government believes that people living in residential aged care facilities are entitled to feel secure that they will receive the services they need and that they will be treated with dignity and respect. This paper and the consultations with the community is aimed at promoting these objectives.Availability: (1)

Residential care home workforce development : the rhetoric and reality of meeting older residents' future care needs /

by Wild, Deidre | Joseph Rowntree Foundation | Szczepura, Ala | Nelson, Sara.

Publisher: York, U.K. Joseph Rowntree Foundation 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2010 Bibliography : p.48-50Summary: This study examines the best way of meeting the future needs of older care home residents. Exploring evidence from an in-depth study of three residential homes, it confirms that training care staff in basic clinical skills can enhance health and social care provision for older people in residential homes. It found that: This approach could boost older people's quality of life by making them more comfortable, increasing their well-being, and reducing the chance of them being unsettled by a move to a nursing home. Also residential homes will not be able to provide this choice unless there is financial support for new role carers and their training.Availability: (1)
