Aged Care Facilities

The Final Report of The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, due in November 2020 is likely to recommend significant reform to a sector that is already under financial and operating pressure. The current challenging environment presents an opportunity to facilitate necessary changes to ensure compliance with the new Aged Care Quality and Safety Standards, which came into effect in January 2020.

Agilient appreciates that many executive teams are likely to be reviewing their organisation’s policies and practices to ensure their risk management and governance frameworks are fit-for–purpose to comply with the new Standards.

Our expert consultants are available to assist you in developing robust structures, processes and systems that will ensure appropriate quality and service standards are achieved.

We take the time to understand and address our individual clients’ requirements by contextualising the risks, evaluating the needs and options, and ultimately producing effective strategies to achieve best practice.
