What is this article about?

Every older adult deserves to receive safe and high-quality aged care - but sadly, this hasn’t always been the case in Australia. The new Code of Conduct for Aged Care aims to improve this by encouraging ethical, honest and respectful behaviour from aged care providers and staff; helping to increase trust in Australian aged care services; and protecting consumers from aged care staff who pose a risk of harm.
