Purpose of the aged care system
Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety- Final Report Vol 1. Executive Summary p80
'The purpose of the aged care system must be to ensure that older people have an entitlement to high quality aged care support and that they must received it. Such care and support must be safe and timely and must assist older people to live an active, self-determined and meaningful life in a safe and caring environment that allows for dignified living in old age'.
Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety- Final Report Vol 1. Executive Summary p91
'High quality aged care puts older people first. It assists older people to live a self-determined and meaningful life through expert clinical and person care services and other support, provided in a safe and caring environment. High quality aged care is respectful, timely and responsive to older people’s preferences and needs and assists them to live a dignified life.
High quality aged care is provided by caring and compassionate people who are educated and skilled in the care they provide. It enables older people to maintain their capacities for as long as possible, while supporting them when they experience functional decline or need end-of-life care.
High quality aged care delivers a high quality of life. It enables people to engage in meaningful activities that provide purpose, and provides the opportunity for people to remain connected to their community'.
