Aged care packages in the community 2005-06: A statistical overview presents key statistics on the levels of service provision of the Australian Government funded aged care packages. The programs providing these packages are the Community Aged Care Packages (CACP) Program, the Extended Aged Care at Home (EACH) Program and the Extended Aged Care at Home Dementia (EACH Dementia) Program. Previously published annually under the title Community Aged Care Packages in Australia, the new title reflects the expansion of the publication to include information on recipients of all three of these types of community age care packages. Detailed statistics on the socio-demographic characteristics of care recipients and the patterns of the recipients’ admissions and separations are provided. In addition, for the first time this report includes information on carers of EACH and EACH Dementia care recipients. The data presented in this report are a useful resource for those involved in policy development, policy review and the planning of aged care services, with a specific interest in these packages.
