The Residential aged care and aged care packages in the community 2012–13 web report and supplementary tables provide detailed statistical information on residential aged care facilities and community aged care services, as well as the recipients of care, during 2012–13. For this period, community aged care included Community Aged Care Packages (CACPs), Extended Aged Care at Home (EACH), and Extended Aged Care at Home Dementia (EACHD).
In June 2013, the first stage of a package of aged care reforms was introduced which affect the operation of aged care services in a number of ways (for example, the three community programs were replaced with a single Home Care Program)—more details on the reforms can be found on the Department of Social Services website. The data presented in these pages reflect the programs in place during 2012–13 (that is, prior to the reforms commencing).
In addition to the information provided here and in the supplementary tables (with charts), a request for customised information can be made to the AIHW's National Aged Care Data Clearinghouse
