The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality & Safety was established in October 2018 by the Governor-General of the Commonwealth Australia with the aim of ensuring the quality of aged care services are met to the highest standards possible.
The National Aged and Community Care Roundtable for Forgotten Australians (National Roundtable) assisted with a number of submissions to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. They focused on recommendations for improved aged and community care services for Forgotten Australians. The submissions included multiple case studies on the care that Forgotten Australians are receiving and the issues surrounding it, as well as multiple recommendations for the aged care system to have a special focus on Forgotten Australians. The suggestions ranged from the promotion of an innovative approach to the delivery of services and support for Forgotten Australians and other Care Leavers as they age and their need for assistance increases.
