Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. The Senate 2009Description: xiv, 153 p.: ill. + appendices.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: On 14 October 2008, the Senate referred to the Finance and Public Administration Committee for inquiry into the funding, planning, allocation, capital and equity of residential and community aged care in Australia with particular reference to whether current funding levels are sufficient to meet the expected quality service provision outcomes; how appropriate the current indexation formula is in recognising the actual cost of pricing aged care services to meet the expected level and quality of such services. Also included are measures that can be taken to address regional variations in the cost of service delivery and the construction of aged care facilities and whether there is an inequality in user payments between different groups of aged care consumers and, if so, how the inequity can be addressed; whether the current planning ratio between community, high- and low-care places is appropriate; and the impact of current and future residential places allocation and funding on the number and provision of community care places.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Residential care requires relocation to the institution but provides both housing and care to older persons, whereas home-based care means that care is brought to the older person within their own home. The absence of economic evaluations of care at home for older people in Australia is significant, given that policy and care arrangements vary substantially from country to country.'
