On 9 October 2018, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the establishment of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety in response to a number of documented cases of abuse and neglect in Australia’s aged care sector.
Baptistcare shares the public’s sadness and concern over these reports and understands the community’s demand for an open and transparent review.
Aged Care providers were invited to complete a detailed survey in relation to their services.
We provided our submission in early January and we welcome the opportunity to identify potential improvements to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our residents and customers. Members of the public are also invited to make submissions.
Public hearings have commenced and will be held in all capital cities and a number of regional locations with the final report to be delivered by 30 April 2020.
