Quality & Safety In Aged Care – Call Out To Hear Your Views!

Quality & Safety In Aged Care – Call Out To Hear Your Views!

The Review of National Aged Care Quality Regulatory Processes, led by Kate Carnell AO, was released to the public on 25 October 2017.

In response, COTA Australia is leading a review to hear experiences and views of older people, their friends, family and other supporters to understand:

  • What factors impact choosing an aged care provider
  • How people source information to help choose an aged care provider
  • What indicators would assist people when choosing an aged care provider

 

Focus Group

To help inform the COTA Australia work, COTA SA has scheduled a series of small focus groups in the week of 27 November 2017 to hear from the community.

We acknowledge this is short notice, but we have a unique opportunity to provide direct consumer viewpoints into the COTA Australia review if we move quickly. This review will go to the Department of Health in January.

We are keen to talk to people who match the following descriptions:


Pre entry into Home Care services

  • People who are starting to consider getting some more support around the home, or who may start this search in the next few years
  • People who are actively seeking aged care services at home

Post entry into Home Care services

  • People who have started to receive aged care services at home within the last year
  • People who are currently accessing aged care services at home and may be starting to consider residential care

Carers, Partners, family members or others in an Aged Care consumer's support network

  • Partners or family carers of people accessing aged care services at home or in residential care
  • Family members and support people of people seeking aged care services at home or in residential care
  • Family members of Aged Care consumers with dementia at home or in residential care
