Rights and Responsibilities - Residential Care
No matter which aged care home you live in, your rights and responsibilities are the same. To protect these rights and responsibilities, there is legislation that all Australian Government-subsidised aged care homes must follow, such as the Aged Care Act 1997 (the Act).
‘Residential care’ refers to the care and essential services you receive when living in an aged care home.
