Ama­roo Hos­tel, this year’s Ber­ri­gan Shire Busi­ness of the Year, has re­cently un­der­gone its three year ac­cred­i­ta­tion and ‘‘passed with fly­ing colours’’.

Ev­ery three years all aged care providers go through ac­cred­i­ta­tion to make sure all stan­dards are be­ing meet and if there is room for im­prove­ment that it is pointed out and ad­dressed.

Hos­tel man­ager Kathy Bush said Ama­roo meet all 44 out­comes in the four stan­dards, and the ac­cred­i­tors com­mented on the out­stand­ing over­all ‘‘res­i­dent fo­cus’’ care given at Ama­roo.

Ms Bush said she was ‘‘very happy’’ with the re­sults and was most sur­prised that there were no ad­di­tional com­ments given.

‘‘Usu­ally, ac­cred­i­tors rec­om­mend best prac­tice in some ar­eas but this time they had noth­ing to add,’’ she said.

‘‘It is very re­as­sur­ing to know that we are do­ing a great job.’’
