Australian aged care standards 'impress' expert

AN INTERNATIONAL aged care expert has praised the level of support for in-home care in Australia after travelling to the Gold Coast for the 2017 LASA National Congress.

Professor Tine Rostgaard was at the congress to discuss the Danish model for aged care when she was afforded the chance to visit local couple John and Gwen Pryke.

The Pryke's, recipients of care from leading Australian provider KinCare, were happy to swap stories with the Danish professor.

Professor Rostgaard said she was "impressed" by the support KinCare provided for the Pryke's.

"It is an amazing opportunity to see how in home care is carried out in Australia in contrast to Denmark," she said.

"We were impressed by the way in which care was tailored towards the individual needs of Mr & Mrs Pryke"

KinCare's Chief Marketing Officer, Karen Phipson said, "this was a fabulous opportunity to share best practice and showcase the world class services being offered by KinCare in QLD and across Australia."
