Dementia and the take-up of residential respite care : an analysis using the PIAC cohort /

by Powierski, Andrew | Australian Institute of Health and Welfare | Karmel, Rosemary | Peut, Ann | Anderson, Phil.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare [AIHW]. Data.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010 Cat. no. CSI 9 The authors of this report were Andrew Powierski, Rosemary Karmel and Phil Anderson of the Data Linkage Unit, and Ann Peut of the Ageing and Aged Care Unit, at the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW).Summary: Caregivers regularly identify respite as their most urgent care need, and the provision of respite care has developed in response to this. Current evidence about respite use patterns for people with dementia and their carers is largely based on small-scale studies and qualitative research. This report assesses the take-up of residential respite care (RRC) following an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) approval for people with and without dementia. It analyses data from the Pathways in Aged Care (PIAC) project which uses record linkage to identify use of aged care programs following an assessment by an ACAT. It focuses on the take-up of RRC by 32,000 people who were living in the community and had a relevant ACAT approval in the 2003-04 financial year.Availability: (1)

Dementia and the take-up of residential respite care /

by Powierski, Andrew | Australian Institute of Health and Welfare | Karmel, Rosemary | Peut, Ann | Anderson, Phil.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare [AIHW]. Bulletin ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010 Cat. no. AUS 124 Bibliography : p. 22-23Summary: People caring for those with dementia have identified respite care as one of their critical care needs. Their low use of respite care, however, appears to belie this stated need. Evidence about respite use patterns for people with dementia and their carers has to date largely been based on small-scale studies and qualitative research. A recent systematic review of the literature on transitions in care of people with dementia found little that described common pathways and transitions between care types, including the use of respite care (Runge et al. 2009). This study aims to fill part of this evidence gap using nationally linked administrative data to quantify the extent to which residential respite care is taken up by those with and without dementia. The study is based on 32,000 members of the Pathways in Aged Care (PIAC) cohort who had an approval for residential respite care use from an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) in 2003?04.Availability: (1)
