Emergency planning for residential aged care services
The Department of Health & Human Services have developed resources to support residential aged care service providers in their planning and preparations for a broad range of natural hazards including bushfires, heatwave, floods and storms.
The resources focus on a range of important planning considerations for providers including residents’ care needs, alternative accommodation, transportation, supplies equipment and services, staffing and physical environment, including information about being a host service and returning home.
