Everyone deserves the right to be treated with respect and dignity, both of which are important provisions of human rights law, especially in aged care, that’s what Aged Care Quality Standard 1 is all about.
Everyone can make a contribution and we can uphold this fundamental right by the way we treat others.
Aged Care Quality Standard 1: Consumer dignity and choice.
One of the first and most basic requirements of the ‘Aged Care Quality Standards’ is that service providers must fully respect and support customers’ choices and cultural backgrounds.
Emphasis is also placed on the importance of allowing the client to be able to act independently and be involved in their community. Both of which, are key when it comes to their health and well-being.
Other Aged Care Quality Standards include the following:
- Standard 2. Ongoing assessment and planning with consumers.
- Standard 3. Personal care and clinical care.
- Standard 4. Services and supports for daily living.
- Standard 5. Organisation’s service environment.
- Standard 6. Feedback and complaints.
- Standard 7. Human resources.
- Standard 8. Organisational governance.
