Catholic Health Australia Chief Executive Officer, Mrs Suzanne Greenwood, says that the Government's announcement today of multidisciplinary 'Severe Behaviour Response Teams' providing expert advice to residential aged care facilities as the response to last year's axing of the Dementia and Behaviour Supplement will be useful for some facilities but does not provide a comprehensive response.
At the CHA National Conference the My Future Care website was launched. The web based resource provides information to help ensure people think about their health care needs and discuss them with others. The resource provides a framework that is consistent with the CHA Code of Ethical Standards for Catholic health and aged care services, but has been designed to be appropriate for people of all faiths and none.
