Star Ratings for aged care homes coming soon

All aged care homes in Australia will have Star Ratings by the end of 2022. Star Ratings will 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 will Star Ratings work?

Aged care homes will receive a rating of 1 to 5 stars, based on an overall Star Rating and four sub-category ratings:           

  • Residents’ Experience
  • Compliance
  • Staffing
  • Quality Measures.

You will find Star Ratings for aged care homes in the Find a provider tool from December 2022.
