Royal Commission into the aged care sector

5 October 2018

On Sunday, September 16, the Federal Government announced a Royal Commission into the Aged Care sector in response to incidents of neglect and abuse in nursing homes across the country.

The Royal Commission, once it is established later this year, will look at the quality of care in Residential and Home Aged Care to senior Australians, but also include young Australians with disabilities living in Residential Aged Care settings.

In the coming months it is expected to generate further media coverage, likely negative, and growing concern in the community about how the aged care industry operates and treats older people.

Hall & Prior Chief Executive Officer Graeme Prior said he supports the establishment of the Royal Commission and its endeavour to raise the bar on industry standards.

“Our organisation has been built on the decades of commitment, professionalism and compassion that our staff show each and every day,” he said.

“Their work reflects our organisation’s values and dedication towards continuous improvement across all areas and services we provide. Ensuring the safety and high quality care of every individual in our homes is our top priority, and we welcome this move towards ensuring all care recipients across Australia are treated with the same respect.”

If you have any questions regarding the Royal Commission, you can contact us by emailing royalcommissionenquiries@hallprior.com.au or call (08) 9327 9915.
