Who are Responsible Care Providers?
To help make finding quality aged care services easier for older people and their families Aged Care Report Card is running a campaign to encourage all responsible care providers to commit to our ‘Four Principles of Responsible Care’.
So when you see this badge you will know that this aged care provider has committed to ACRC’s Principles of Responsible Care.
What are the Four Principles of Responsible Care?
- Principle 1 Report openly on performance achievements and shortcomings. Acknowledge that identifying areas for improvement are critical to improving standards and quality of care delivered to all older people.
- Principle 2 Listen, engage and work with older people and their carers to understand and address their concerns and expectations.
- Principle 3 Encourage all employees providing care and other company stakeholders to commit to and participate in responsible care.
- Principle 4 Make responsible care a priority and commit to open engagement in a public forum to help older people identify quality services and drive continuous improvements.
Providers are screened and checked before receiving a badge. Senior Care Provider’s do not need to pay to become a “Responsible Care Provider”.
What is the purpose of the Responsible Care Compare page?
These principles are inspired by The United Nations (UN) Principles for Older persons established in 1991 recommended that all government members adopt the principles into their company practices and policies whenever possible.
Aged Care Report Card recognises there have been significant changes in the landscape since 1991, as such the way seniors and their families gather information and engage online is changing.
As such Aged Care Report Card is reinvigorating these principles with a focus on choice, control and transparency. We are asking providers to commit to our four principles so consumers and health professionals can have the ease of access to search, compare and deliver their feedback. Senior Care Providers that have made a pledge are opening their communication channels, as they believe in their quality service and recognise the difficult process seniors and their families go through to find quality care services and want to make it easier for them.
