All government-funded aged care homes in Australia now have a Star Rating.
Star Ratings make it easier for you to compare the quality of aged care homes and make choices about your care.
Star Ratings are a key aged care reform being delivered in response to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. The Royal Commission highlighted the need for information about service quality to be available for you.
How do Star Ratings work?
Aged care homes receive a rating of 1 to 5 stars, based on an overall Star Rating and four sub-category ratings:
- Residents’ Experience
- Quality Measures.
You can find Star Ratings for aged care homes in the Find a provider tool.
