The Aged Care Voluntary Industry Code of Practice is designed for providers to continually set the bar higher each day so that they can aspire to provide better services to older Australians than they did the day before.
We are implementing an industry-first Aged Care Voluntary Code of Practice, to bring aged care services, consumers and providers together under a single code for all.
The Council is encourage providers to pledge their commitment to the Code and for consumers, workers, and their organisations to state their support.
It sets out how Industry leaders intend to guide their organisations – and the sector – in delivering care services that reflect the rights and needs of Australians as they age.
