What is this article about?

In some cases, aged care organisations might supply their clients with equipment to use outside of the service environment, for example, within the care recipient’s own home if they are receiving a Home Care Package. Any equipment provided by the organisation must be fit for purpose; that is, safe, suitable, clean and well-maintained. For example, if installing a handrail for a client, the organisation would be responsible for firstly choosing a high-quality, sturdy handrail to implement, and then ensuring it’s installed correctly.
