An online assessment tool for residential aged care homes

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety called for increasing the capability and capacity of the workforce amid the findings demonstrating the quality of dementia care in the aged care system needs significant and immediate improvement. Evaluate the dementia knowledge, skills and attitudes amongst your staff with the Dementia practice heath check, an online assessment tool for residential aged care homes. It identifies gaps in dementia knowledge and prioritises areas for improvement and staff development.

The Dementia practice health check is underpinned by the Aged Care Quality Standards and the 2019 Dementia Australia Consumer Summit recommendations. These recommendations reflect what is important for consumers in dementia care. The health check is easy to do. Start by completing the short manager survey online. Then invest in gaining insights into your staff’s capability by having them complete the staff survey. These survey results are then compiled to produce a detailed report.
