Food and dining in residential aged care - supporting informed choice
It’s your choice. If you live in residential aged care, you should feel supported to make informed choices about all aspects of your food, drink and dining experience.
The Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission has released fact sheets to help you to understand how to make changes to your food and dining experience and resolve any issues.
The fact sheets include:
- why choice matters
- how your care team can support you in making informed choices
- what to do if you feel that your choices are being limited.
More information about food, dining and nutrition is available on the Commission’s website.
Let's change aged care, together
Every Australian should feel confident about accessing high quality and safe aged care, when and where they need it.
The changes mean older Australians will have greater choice and control, services that respect and meet their needs, and support to stay independent as they age.
