Welcome to the website for the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency. We are the accreditation body for residential aged care homes, and from 1 July we will also be responsible for quality review of home care services.

Our website is still under construction and we will be progressively adding information.

Better Practice Awards 2014


For Providers

The accreditation processes are set out in the Quality Agency Principles and are largely unchanged from the Accreditation Grant Principles 2011. The Accreditation Standards are unchanged.

For the Public

Residents are at the heart of our work. Our assessors speak to around 50,000 residents each year about the quality of care they receive, and every aged care home gets at least one unannounced visit each year.

Education Programs

We offer a strong and evidence-based industry education program to help aged care providers improve their performance and deliver better services for Australians in their care. This is how we help drive quality.
