Further information

We are strengthening the Aged Care Quality Standards and it’s time to have your say.

Based on feedback from the aged care sector, older Australians and their families, we have developed a revised version of the Aged Care Quality Standards that is:

  • easier to understand
  • relevant to more aged care services
  • more measurable
  • easier to implement.

We are now seeking your feedback to help us further strengthen the Quality Standards.

Please complete the survey.

There will be opportunity to upload a written submission at the end of the survey should you wish to do so.

Resources to assist include:

Read the consultation paper in your language – Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Croatian, Greek, Italian and Spanish.
