In Australia, the aged care system offers a range of options to meet the different care needs of each individual. The desire of many older Australians to remain in their own homes as they age has led to an increasing focus on the provision of aged care services in community settings.
More reports and statistics on aged care can be found under Dementia, Older people and Palliative care services.
