Tick of approval for Liscombe House

October 11, 2017

Liscombe House, OCAV’s aged care facility, has been given the tick of approval by the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency following a recent unannounced visit.

 

The Australian Aged Care Quality Agency undertakes regular spot checks on aged care facilities across the country in a bid to identify problem areas and improve standards.

 

“We are pleased with the results of what is an all-consuming but critical exercise in making sure that we are delivering the service that we want for our residents and their families, and the service they expect from us,” Shaaron Robilliard, Director of Nursing said.

 

“We take our nursing care very seriously, and are always looking at ways of continuously improving what we do and how we do it,” she added.

 

Liscombe House is currently caring for 80 residents, and one in respite. A palliative care team has just been established at the home, with 16 residents palliated in-house rather than going to hospital last year.

 

“We are never complacent about our work which is why we put every effort into making sure our nursing and care staff are up to date with the latest treatments and approaches, and education programs,” Shaaron Robilliard, Director of Nursing said.

 

The Australian Aged Care Quality Agency accredits care homes that are funded by the Federal Government.

 

Leith Park is a wonderful place for single older women because of the community and the age-friendly accommodation. I don’t think I have ever felt as safe as I have here.
