The Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission's (commission) role is to protect and enhance the safety, health, well-being and quality of life of people receiving aged care.
It promotes high quality care and services to safeguard everyone who is receiving Australian Government funded aged care.
The commission independently accredits, assesses and monitors aged care services subsidised by the Australian Government. It also resolves complaints about these services. Through its engagement and education work the commission aims to build confidence and trust in aged care, empower consumers, support providers to comply with quality standards, and promote best practice service provision.
