Housing and care for younger and older adults with disabilities : final report. /

by Bridge, Catherine | [Australian Houisng and Urban Research Institute] | Kendig, Hal | Quine, Susan | Parsons, Amanda.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute 2002Description: xIi, 58 p. : ill.Notes: May 2002 Bibliography: p. 55-56Summary: This paper outlines research by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute: Sydney Research Centre, which examines the relationships between housing and care for younger and older adults with disabilities. Whilst disability, ageing, housing and care are important areas in themselves the real strength of this study is the provision of a national overview of housing as a key issue across and between these policy areas. The significance of the intersections between housing, and care is accentuated by population ageing, rising expectations amongst consumer groups, and constraints on government expenditure. Adults with disabilities often face multiple vulnerabilities, including limited incomes and social support, and therefore require integrated support delivered to a secure home base.

by Catholic Health Australia.

Publisher: Deakin, A.C.T. Catholic Health Australia 2008Description: PDF.Summary: The last major reform of residential aged care policy occurred in 1997. The benefit of those reforms has now been exhausted. The first major reforms of aged care policy occurred under the Hawke Keating Government.

One in nine residential aged care beds in Australia is provided through services operated by different bodies of the Catholic Church. CHA, as the peak body for these residential and home care services, speaks on behalf of the largest grouping of aged care services in the Australia. ; CHA adopted in July of 2008 a new vision for aged care which it seeks to see achieved by 2020. This vision is of equity of access to aged care services for all Australians, with a preference for those living in socioeconomic disadvantage.Availability: No items available
