Accreditation

Accreditation, by an independent organisation, is essential for aged care facilities to be able to operate and receive government funding.

Under the Aged Care Act 1997, all aged care facilities must meet an accreditation requirement to be eligible to receive a Commonwealth residential care subsidy. The Aged Care Standards Agency conducts site audits and evaluates an organisation's processes.

Accreditation is granted to homes that comply with Standards defined in the Aged Care Act, which aims to ensure that residents of aged care facilities receive high and continuously improving quality of care and services.

There are four Standards:
Management systems, staffing and organisation development
Health and personal care
Resident Lifestyle and
Physical environment and safe systems.
Each Standard is divided into a number of expected outcomes. (44 in total).

Each of St Sergius three facilities have again received 3 years' accreditation following the most recent Accreditation surveys in March 2009.The facilities met all 44 expected outcomes.
