Seniors rights and responsibilities
You have a right to be looked after properly, treated well and given high-quality care and services.
To make sure you get the best care, all service providers have responsibilities and must meet certain standards.
The Charter of Care Recipients’ Rights and Responsibilities for Home Care acknowledges your rights and those of your family and carers, as well as your responsibilities.
According to the Charter, services should be delivered in a respectful manner.
The Charter also says carers should be recognised as partners in care, and be able to participate in decision making in care situations when the care recipient is unable to do so.
