Single Charter of Aged Care Rights - Public Consultation

Posted by RD on 6 September 2018

The Hon Ken Wyatt AM, MP, Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care and Minister for Indigenous Health, has announced the opening of public consultation on the draft Charter of Aged Care Rights (the Charter).

The single Charter is a component of the Single Aged Care Quality Framework and will replace the existing four charters relating to aged care recipients rights and responsibilities. It will apply to people once they commence receiving Commonwealth-subsidised aged care, including residential care, home care, flexible care, and services provided under the Commonwealth Home Support Program and the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program.

The Department wants to hear from as many individuals and organisations with an interest in aged care rights as possible, including:

  • consumers, their families and carers
  • advocacy groups
  • consumer peak organisations
  • key sector groups
  • aged care organisations
  • staff of aged care organisations, health and disability service providers

For more information, and to submit your comments, please visit the Consultation Hub.

The consultation closes on Wednesday, 10 October 2018. Late submissions will not be accepted.

If you are having difficulty completing an online submission, please contact qualityagedcare@health.gov.au for assistance.
