In a recent audit by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission in June 2020 of Faversham House we received a four star rating which is the top rating residential aged care provider can achieve.
In Australia, residential aged care services are required to be accredited to receive Australian Government subsidies. The Commission has been appointed as the independent accreditation body, and assesses residential services’ performance against the legislated Aged Care Quality Standards (Quality Standards).
Accreditation involves periodic full audits to assess compliance with the Quality Standards. In addition, the Commission monitors the quality of care and services and manages any non-compliance with the Quality Standards.
While accreditation-related processes involve a relationship principally between the Commission as the accrediting body and the approved provider, residential aged care accreditation exists for the benefit of aged care consumers (consumers) their relatives and representatives.
‘’Whilst we met all the Aged Care standards we will continuously consult with our residents and their families to improve the care and services we provide’’ says BASScare CEO, Craig Bardrick. ‘’Our staff have worked hard so we are extremely proud of this achievement.
Faversham House is designed to complement and enhance the existing neighbourhood streetscape, creating a very welcoming, home like atmosphere. Built in 2006 and expanded in 2012, Faversham House is a state-of-the-art aged care home, consisting of a number of residential domains, featuring intimate dining and living areas, equipped with a cosy fire place.
These tranquil domains are further complimented with direct access to outdoor recreation and splendid garden surrounds. Our resident lodgings strongly focus on personalisation and comfort, providing close proximity to an allocated carer’s station.
The safety, dignity, comfort and companionship of our residents is paramount. We are a proud approved provider of Residential Aged Care in Melbourne that allows residents, family, representatives and friends to feel assured, knowing that qualified and supportive staff are always on duty. As a provider of Aging in Place, we offer a consultative approach, ensuring that all our residents receive the appropriate individualised level of care in accordance to their progressive care requirements.
All BASScare staff are carefully selected and highly skilled and
experienced in Aged Care. The facility has 6 units, with an
in-charge Manager for each unit. A Registered Nurse Division One
is in attendance at all times, with a team of Division Two Nurses
and Personal Care attendants to assist. We maintain very high
staffing ratios and rarely use agency staff.
Faversham House has “state-of-the-art” kitchen facilities with all

family and friends are welcome to join residents for a meal. A private dining room is also available for small functions.
Faversham House has an “Assisted Memory Unit” which provides for specialised
dementia care. It has its own specifically designed secure

Continued participation in the community is encouraged through

An active continuous improvement management system is in place. The
