Yes. All Aged Care organisations must be accredited under the Australia Quality Aged Care Commission standards.

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

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 together with the audit reports on the Quality Agency website.
