Is Alwyndor accredited?

Yes. All Aged Care organisations must be accredited under the Australia Quality Aged Care Commission standards. This means regular audits of all of our services and unannounced spot visits from time to time to monitor our ongoing compliance. The audits include conversations with clients and their families. You can view Alwyndor’s most recent site audit reports on the Quality Agency website www.aacqa.gov.au/publications/reports

Consumer Experience Reports

A Consumer Experience Report for all residential aged care services was introduced in June 2017. These reports are published following audits of aged care homes and can be found with the audit reports on the Quality Agency website.
