South Australian and Malaysian aged care comes together

A more collaborative and innovative approach to aged care is the goal behind the signing of an international Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Australian aged care provider ACH Group and Malaysian based provider Aged Care Group.

Witnessed by South Australian Minister for Ageing Zoe Bettison, the MOU affirms that the two aged care providers will work together to share knowledge of each other’s countries and experiences to better provide care to older people.

ACH Group Chief Executive Officer Ray Creen says the new agreement will bring together both organisations and provide ACH with the opportunity to learn and develop tools such as how to provide care to different populations in a multicultural society.

“We have many things to learn about providing care for such a diverse market place,” Mr Creen says.

“Australia is one of the most ethnically diverse societies in the world today and as an aged care provider, we need to continue to learn how to care for such an extremely broad marker, something that ACG do in Malaysia so well.”

As well as the diversity in the market place, ACH hopes to learn about ACG’s advanced use of technology to develop their already strong community-based care model, a model that involves community, public and private sectors.

“ACH Group’s integrated continuum of care is made up of a comprehensive array of health services,” Mr Creen says.

“Developing this even further and combining it with a progressive use of technology will mean South Australia’s aged care sector is a leader for the nation.”

ACH Group hopes the relationship between South Australia and Malaysia will ‘elevate and introduce’ a care model of international standards to the state.
