Age-related residential-care services agreement
National contract for age-related residential care between district health boards and aged residential-care providers.
The Ministry of Health introduced a national aged residential contract from 1 June 2002. Responsibility for this contract was devolved to district health boards on 1 October 2003.
The contract covers rest home, dementia and geriatric hospital level care delivered in a residential-care setting. The contract ensures that there is a national standard of services that are provided to residents in long-term residential care. It is important that residents, friends and families, are aware what services are covered in this contract.
Each year there is a national review of the Age-Related Residential Care contracts between DHBs and providers for the provision of Age-Related Residential Care Services. Any variations agreed are included in the Aged Related Residential Care agreements.
