Glenara Lakes is now fully compliant with all national aged care quality standards after being issued a notice of non-compliance in January.
The notice of non-compliance issued on January 16 was lifted in March and an additional eight criteria have now been met after an assessment of the facility between October 23 and 25, its operator Southern Cross Care has confirmed.
The aged care facility at Youngtown has formed part of a case study into SCC before a hearing of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety in Hobart this week.

SCC chief executive Richard Sadek said, given the commission was ongoing, it was inappropriate for the organisation to speak about the hearing at this time.
After the case study about two SCC-run facilities concluded on Wednesday, Mr Sadek on Thursday was travelling to Glenara Lakes and a second facility at Somerset, Yaraandoo Hostel, to provide support to his staff.
"We fully understand that it is our staff who are on the frontline and bearing the brunt of all the fallout from the royal commission," Mr Sadek said.
"Our staff are wonderful and they need to know they are supported and do an amazing job in very difficult circumstances."
Yaraandoo is now also fully compliant with the aged care standards after being sanctioned from November 2018 until August this year.
Mr Sadek confirmed an independent assessment resulted in the lifting of the notice which referred to five items of non-compliance on September 13.
