From 1 July 2019, "new laws will compel all aged care providers to sign and conform to a single, strengthened Charter of Rights...

For the first time, providers will have to provide a personally signed copy of the Charter to every one of their residents and care recipients, at the same time giving them - or their authorised representative - the opportunity to co-sign the document."

For more information and to access a copy of the Charter refer to a media release from the Hon Ken Wyatt AM, MP, Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care.
