Ageing in place relates to the provision of responsive and flexible care in line with each individual’s changing care needs in a familiar and appropriate environment. The Australian Aged Care Group provides ageing in place in all their facilities and aims to allow residents to age in place in his/her own room, with all necessary care and services brought to the resident. There may be some circumstances where residents will be encouraged to change rooms within the facility, if their level of care and cognitive status significantly changes and their individual care needs could be better addressed in a different setting.
