Can residents leave during the day or stay overnight elsewhere?

Residents can leave the Centre throughout the day, provided the care staff on duty are notified, and the sign out register is signed upon leaving and returning to the Centre.
Only permanent Aged Care residents are permitted to leave the Centre to stay overnight elsewhere, within limits. This must first be cleared with the Facility manager. However, respite residents are not able to stay overnight elsewhere, as this is considered an immediate discharge.
