Community Care Common Standards and Quality Reporting Documentation
The Community Care Common Standards have been developed jointly by the Australian Government and State and Territory Governments as part of broader community care reforms to develop common arrangements that help to simplify and streamline the way community care is delivered. The common standards draw together the differing community care standards into a single set of quality standards and have the benefit of reducing the administrative burden for service providers.
By agreement between the then Commonwealth Minister for Ageing and the Ministers with responsibility for community aged care in every State and Territory government, the Community Care Common Standards (the common standards) now apply to the following community aged care programs, with the date of effect being from 1 March 2011:
- Home and Community Care (HACC)
- Community Aged Care Packages (CACP)
- Extended Aged Care at Home (EACH)
- Extended Aged Care at Home Dementia (EACHD)
- National Respite for Carers Program (NRCP)
