Standard 7: The residential community

Publication date

We have released a suite of fact sheets to help providers, aged care workers, and other stakeholders understand the new strengthened Quality Standards and their obligations in meeting them .

The strengthened Quality Standards will come into effect in line with the commencement of the new Aged Care Act.

Strengthened Quality Standard 7 acknowledges that when people move into a residential service, the new community becomes a central part of their lives. It’s important for people to feel safe, included and respected. This Standard only applies to residential aged care services.
