Royal Commission final report


Estia Health Chief Executive Officer Ian Thorley today said the organisation welcomed the final report of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.

“We are working through the recommendations to understand how we can improve the way we provide older Australians with high quality care in a safe environment that protects their wellbeing and dignity” Mr Thorley said.

“We have strongly supported the call by the Royal Commission for fundamental reform of the aged care system and remain committed to cooperatively working with Government and regulators to implement the changes.

“The Commission has been a thorough and valuable process and we believe, as a result, the entire sector will be better positioned to provide a sustainable aged care system that meets the needs of older Australians in the future.

“As the report has just been released, we will take some time to review it in its entirety and we will respond more fully once we have completed our review.”
