Ageing in what place? The experience of housing crisis and homelessness for older Victorians - Final report /

by Hanover Welfare Services.

Publisher: South Melbourne, Vic. Hanover 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 41-43 Appendices pp. 44-47Summary: Australia is facing significant demographic shifts over the next decade as the population grows and ages. Currently, services for the ageing population are fragmented with no single government department assuming responsibility for older Australians in all their diversity. ; Homelessness and housing services are reporting an increase in aged people presenting for assistance with no (recent) history of homelessness. Older Australians in private rental, or those entering private rental for the first time, appear to be particularly vulnerable. While the population is diverse, these people all have insecure tenure and limited income. ; In Australia there is no coherent response for older people in housing crisis or at risk of homelessness. In Victoria, the service response for the aged is focused on individuals with chronic health issues and homeless histories. Currently, the homelessness service sector doesn't provide a clearly differentiated response to those at risk of housing crisis or homelessness who are ageing.Availability: (1)

Homelessness and older Australians : scoping the issues /

by Petersen, Maree | University of Queensland. Institute for Social Science esearch | Jones, Andrew.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Date of original catalog. Oct 2012Summary: This report is written in the context of the Australian Government's long-term goals of halving overall homelessness and offering supported accommodation to all rough sleepers who need assistance by 2020. It focuses on the implications of these goals for one specific demographic group, older Australians. It examines the nature and extent of homelessness in Australia's older population and considers the policy, practice and research responses that are required for this population group if the Australian Government's long-term goals are to be achieved. By all recent estimates persons aged 55 and over comprise close to one-fifth of all homeless people in Australia. Hence, developing a strategy to address homelessness amongst the older population is a core requirement for Australia's homelessness strategy. Australia's population is ageing and persons aged 50 and over are predicted to more than double numerically from 2010 to 2050, and to increase as a proportion of the total population from 31.4 per cent in 2010 to 40.0 per cent in 2050. Hence, later life homelessness is likely to be a growing issue requiring sustained attention and sustainable strategies. Despite this, older homeless people have received less attention in public policy than other groups of homeless people, and there is no integrated strategy designed specifically to reduce the number of older people experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. Such a strategy is required if homelessness amongst older people is to be effectively addressed.Availability: (1)
