The Government will strengthen protections to make sure aged care services are being delivered safely to senior Australians in their homes. It will introduce a new home care compliance framework that lays the groundwork for risk based assessment of home care providers and increases audits of the quality of care being delivered. The framework will mean the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission can quickly identify risks and respond to protect senior Australians.
