The project comprises two main stages. The first stage entails developing a foundation of evidence from analysis of existing literature, the current legislative framework, and key stakeholder consultations. The second stage of the project will comprise development of a survey of residential aged care homes to empirically assess key influences on quality of care and life for residents and identify performance measures to monitor future improvement.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)

Review of services for older people : background paper 1 : review of the literature on current and emerging issues in aged care policy and program development in Australia and major OECD countries /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 1994Description: 40p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Contents: The Australian policy context -- Shifts from residential to community care -- Development of needs-based care packages -- Possible shifts to users paying a higher proportion of service costs -- Role of service users in policy and program development -- Changing definitions of dependency and entitlement -- Summary of major trends and their implications for low-income AustraliansSummary: This paper draws on the literature from Australia and OECD countries, to examine the five key issues about directions in aged care policy and program development outlined in the brief by the Brotherhood of St Laurence. It addresses trends in policy and program development - shifts to community care; development of needs-based care packages; moves to higher user contributions and involvement of service users, as well as changing definitions of dependency and entitlement. This is perhaps the most difficult issue to deal with in a short paper because it has a broad array of dimensions and intermeshed fators - changes in needs and expectations; in family and social structures; economic, social and political conditions; personal and public resources and priorities. The final summary links the implications of the trends to the main focus of the Brotherhood's work - low-income older Australians.[Introduction]Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Submission in response to High Care Residential Aged Care Facilities in Victoria.

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2000Description: PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: August 2000 Consultation Paper Contact: Sally Ryan, Group Manager, Residential Services ; Sally Jope, Research and Policy Officer, Social Action and Research.Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence provides residential aged care to people who are and who have a history of surviving on low incomes and whose social and emotional needs may be as high as their needs for nursing. This submission is based on our experience in this area over the past 50 years. As the Commonwealth Government is the primary funder and regulator of residential aged care services we question any pressing need for extra regulation in Victoria. The current method by which governments ensure quality care is through the Commonwealth’s accreditation process. Approved providers must ensure the relevant care and services meet the Quality of Care Principles and must maintain an adequate number of appropriately skilled staff to ensure that care recipients’ needs are met. We believe that this accreditation process should be given time to be evaluated and that the Victorian Government would be most effective if it was to support the residential aged care sector to embrace this process and to meet the standards of accommodation and care prescribed by the Commonwealth. The State could also be involved in the promotion of the image of residential aged care facilities and involve itself in advocating for the needs of residents and staff.
