Australian Aged Care Quality Agency – War Veterans Home re-accreditated until August 2021
RSL Care SA’s War Veterans Home is very pleased that we have been successful in our application for re-accreditation. We now have accreditation from August 2018 through to August 2021.
Accredited residential aged care homes receive Australian Government subsidies to provide quality care and services to care recipients in accordance with the Accreditation Standards.
To remain accredited and continue to receive the subsidy, each home must demonstrate that it meets the Standards.
There are four Standards covering management systems, health and personal care, care recipient lifestyle, and the physical environment and there are 44 expected outcomes such as human resource management, clinical care, medication management, privacy and dignity, leisure interests, cultural and spiritual life, choice and decision-making and the living environment.
Each home applies for re-accreditation before its accreditation period expires and an assessment team visits the home to conduct an audit. The team assesses the quality of care and services at the home and reports its findings of whether the home meets or does not meet the Standards. The Quality Agency then decides whether the home has met the Standards and whether to re-accredit or not to re-accredit the home.
During a home’s period of accreditation, there may be a review audit where an assessment team visits the home to reassess the quality of care and services and reports its findings of whether the home meets or does not meet the Standards.

RSL Care SA War Veterans Home staff were pleased to receive additional positive comments and feedback from the assessors at the completion of the visit. The staff was complemented on their conduct and manner in which they go about their business as well as the good work they are doing in caring for our residents. RSL Care SA was praised for our Janus Approach philosophy of care, which is currently being implemented throughout the organisation, of which we will provide further information on at a later date.
