Abstract

There has come to be a ‘taken-for-granted’ relationship between the availability of informal care and admission to residential aged care facilities. In previous times people without partners had higher rates of residency in such facilities, but there was very little by way of formal home-based care services. Today, with a substantially upgraded home-based care system,we might expect to find co-residence of less significance in predicting admission to residential care.But is this the case?
