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)

High care residential aged care facilities in Victoria : consultation paper /

by Victoria. Department of Human Services.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Victorian Government Publishing Service 2000Description: 59 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2000Summary: Over 36,000 older Victorians are residents of Commonwealth-funded residential aged care facilities, of whom just under half are in high care residential care facilities. The Commonwealth Government funds, regulates and sets standards for high and low care facilities. In 1995 the previous Victorian Government removed the State regulatory framework for nursing homes. At the time, it was argued that the State regulatory framework duplicated the Commonwealth's role. The Victorian Government believes that the community expects all levels of Government to work co-operatively to promote the well being of residents living in aged care facilities. Through this paper the Victorian Government wishes to stimulate discussion about positive action that can be taken to promote a greater sense of confidence among older people and their carers about residential aged care services. The Victorian Government believes that people living in residential aged care facilities are entitled to feel secure that they will receive the services they need and that they will be treated with dignity and respect. This paper and the consultations with the community is aimed at promoting these objectives.Availability: (1)
