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.
