All specified care and services as described in the Quality of Care Principles are available to residents of aged care homes nationally.

These responsibilities also include the provision of podiatry to care recipients of high level residential care, where required.

Commonwealth funded residential aged care services are required to provide and/or assist a resident in accessing specialist therapy services dependent upon the level of care the resident has been assessed as requiring.
