The Guidance material is intended to assist organisations to implement and maintain their compliance with, the Aged Care Quality Standards 2018. It describes the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission's expectations and provides supporting information, suggested practices, examples and evidence required to ensure compliance. It also provides an indication of the matters that Quality Assessors will consider in assessing compliance.
From 1 July 2019, the Commission expects that organisations providing aged care services in Australia will be compliant with the new Aged Care Quality Standards.
