Partnerships in care

A Partnership in care program supports aged care residents and their family or close friends to continue their relationships of care and companionship even during periods of an infectious outbreak.

Where a resident identifies a partner in care, the aged care home can implement a formal partnership arrangement.

Becoming a partner requires basic training in infection prevention and control. Partners also need to understand what is required to enter an aged care home during an outbreak.
