Star Rating System

As part of the Aged Care Sector reforms, a rating system has been implemented to support consumers in making informed choices when considering Aged Care providers.

The Star Rating System will assist consumers to compare services with simple ‘at-a-glance’ information, based on an overall rating and four categories:

Consumer experience - collected through face-to-face interviews by a third-party vendor.

Service compliance ratings – based on regulatory activities undertaken by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission.

  1. Care minutes consider the amount of care an average resident could expect to receive from a registered nurse, enrolled nurse, or personal care worker.
  2. Five quality indicators - pressure injuries, physical restraint, unplanned weight loss, falls and major injury, and medication management.

The Star Ratings are weighted in order of importance as follows:

  1. Consumer Experience (33%),
  2. Service Compliance (30%),
  3. Staff Care Minutes (22%),
  4. Five Quality Indicators (15%).

The Star Ratings scale from 1-5 stars indicates 1 - inadequate, 3 - average to 5 - outstanding care.

Alwyndor’s Star Rating

Performing extremely well in 3 of the 4 categories, Alwyndor received an overall score of 3.
