MRC announces aged care review

By Riverine Herald

MURRAY River Council’s community services department will participate in an aged care quality review, forming part of the accreditation process for the delivery of community-based aged care services.

Council’s community services department provides direct services to eligible frail-aged clients under the Commonwealth Home Support Program and is required to participate in an external quality review every three years.

MRC mayor Chris Bilkey welcomed the news: ‘‘Review processes are always a welcome step towards building confidence in services delivered via council,’’ he said. “It is important residents know they will always receive safe and appropriate aged care services via our programs.’’
